  1. Stir water, soy sauce, cilantro, and rice vinegar together in a bowl.
  2. Heat olive oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat. Saute ginger in hot oil until fragrant, about 1 minute; add the water mixture and flounder to the skillet. Bring the liquid to a boil and immediately remove skillet from heat. Place a tight-fitting lid on the skillet and poach flounder in hot liquid until the flesh easily flakes with a fork, about 10 minutes. Top fillets with chopped scallions.

Soy sauce and rice vinegar are not considered Paleo foods. This recipe should not have PALEO as part of the name. That would be like having a recipe with flour in the recipe as gluten free. SMH.

simple and delicious

Loved this! Swapped in 1 Tb. sesame oil and just used powdered ginger. So simple and delish!

Nice & light. I'd use a little less water & soy sauce. Just a tad too salty but I will definitely make it again - so easy!

Very juicy flavorful fish. The cilantro was a flavorful touch and good way to use up some extra I had. Easy way to make a healthy dinner

Very easy and delicious. I added a cream sauce and topped with fresh basil and green onions.
