Introduction

Running out of ideas for dinner? Broiled flounder is packed with protein and a good source of potassium, vitamins A and C, and other nutrients. If you don't have flounder on hand, you can substitute other types of white fish including tilapia, sea bass, and sole.

I refer to the grilled vegetables in this meal as "potluck" because you can use whatever vegetables and other ingredients you happen have on hand to complement the baked potatoes. It's time to get creative, so let's get cookin'!

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 3 to 4 servings

Step 1: Prepare the Flounder

For this recipe, you will need a large roasting pan.

Ingredients

  • 6 pieces of fresh or frozen flounder (if frozen, thaw overnight or if frozen pieces are individually sealed, place in cold water for 30 minutes to thaw)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley (or dried parsley)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a large roasting pan, add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
  2. Layer the pieces of fish in the pan.
  3. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the fish.
  4. Add salt. Sprinkle the lemon pepper seasoning and parsley on each piece of fish.
  5. Cover and cook for 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees.

Note: The flounder I used was thinly cut. If your flounder is thick, an additional few minutes of cooking time may be necessary.

Step 2: Prepare the Potatoes

You will need a medium pot for this part of the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 large or 2 small potatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup finely chopped vegetables of your choice (since this is "potluck," use whatever is on hand; I used chopped onions, chopped zucchini, and chopped peppers; and it's perfectly fine to just sprinkle the seasonings below and do without the chopped vegetables for the potatoes)
  • Dash garlic powder
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped parsley (or dried parsley)

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot of water, add diced potatoes and bring to the boil. Boil the potatoes for 5 minutes. This softens the potatoes so they will require less cooking time in the oven.
  2. Drain the potatoes.
  3. Place potatoes in baking pan. Add olive oil and all other ingredients and cook at 450 degrees for 30 minutes or until potatoes are slightly browned.

Note: To save time, cook the potatoes and flounder in the oven at the same time, if your oven and pan sizes allow. Otherwise, add 10-12 minutes of cooking time if cooking them separately.

Step 3: Prepare the Potluck Grilled Vegetables

For this step, you will need a medium-to-large frying pan.

Ingredients

  • 1½ to 2 cups chopped vegetables (such as zucchini, onion, peppers, eggplant, mushrooms); I bought freshly chopped vegetables and then chopped them up a little finer
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Dash garlic powder
  • Dash salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped parsley (or dried parsley)

Instructions

  1. In a medium-to-large frying pan, add 1/2 of the olive oil.
  2. Add the mixed vegetables to the pan.
  3. Add the seasonings and mix.
  4. Sauté for 10-12 minutes on medium-to-low heat.

Done!

Nutrition Information

  • Flounder: An excellent source of protein. One flounder filet (approximately 6” x 3 ½” by ½” ) is approximately 150 calories and contains 5 grams of fat, and 30 grams of protein. This may vary slightly depending on the size/ounces of the filet.
  • Potatoes: A good source of carbohydrates, which are a good complement to protein-rich flounder. Approximately ½ cup of baked (roasted) potatoes is approximately 150 calories, including finely chopped vegetables. For the olive oil used to season the potatoes, I use Filippo Berio Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil, which is 120 calories per tablespoon (so allow approximately 50-60 extra calories for a portion of olive oil per serving).
  • Grilled vegetables: A healthy addition to any meal. One cup of cooked mixed vegetables is only 50 calories, 10 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber, 20% of RDA of Vitamin A, 6% of RDA of Vitamin C, and 2% of the RDA of Calcium and Iron. For the olive oil used to season the vegetables, allow approximately 30-40 extra calories per serving).

      Glad you liked the hub, Lisa. The flounder I bought was frozen so I thawed it first; it was pretty thin and with a little bit of olive oil and the lemon pepper seasoning, it cooked in about 12 minutes and it was perfect! Thanks for your comment. Happy Cooking too. :-)

      I sure wish I fixed my flounder the same way the other night. It was a DISASTER! I normally only buy fresh fish and have a hard time cooking frozen fish. Thanks for the ideas. Kroger had it on sale the other day and I have another two bags and a roaster just like yours. Yah!
