We love boating here in the Hamptons in NY. Fluke (summer flounder) fishing is one of our favorite past times. The water is so clean you can actually watch the fish going to the hook. With fresh fish, we enjoy very basic, tasty recipes. This is a keeper!

Pretty good! I left out the butter and used a bit of olive oil before serving. This worked well with sole. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Was looking for a simple whole food recipe for frozen fish fillets and while I did add lots of chopped herbs (chives, oregano, thyme), used a small amount of onion powder instead of onion, this recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I did spray the baking dish based on my last experience with this fish, and added a few halved cherry tomatoes on top while baking. Thank you, this is a keeper! Read More

Very tasty and super simple. I made the flounder exactly like the recipe except I used two tablespoons of butter instead of two teaspoons. I also cooked it for 30 minutes because I prefer my fish a little on the dry side. It came out excellent. My husband who is not a big fan of flounder actually enjoyed it! Read More

Easy to make - 5 stars in this area. My family enjoyed it but thought it was a little plain. My "non fish eating" 12 year old did enjoy it dipped in soy sauce. Will make it again but will probably add a little Old Bay seasoning. Read More

My husband and I both like fish and I found this recipe. I had cod so used that. I turned the skinny end under so it would not overcook. Made no other changes. It was done in 25 minutes as suggested and was delicious. I will try this simple method with other local white fishes. Read More

As promised, this was quick and easy, and also it was good. The butter and lemon give just enough flavor to brighten things up without overpowering the delicate flavor of the flounder. I didn't keep the recipe in front of my while I was preparing it, so I forgot the minced onion. Still having a sense that I was missing something, I used a bit of basil. This worked. My fillets were pretty thin, so they only took 10 minutes at 375F. Read More
