  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.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use avocado oil in place of olive oil, if preferred.
  • Editor's Note:
  • There are different versions and interpretations of what is permitted and not permitted on the paleo diet. Replace any ingredients with paleo-friendly products, if desired.

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.
