Cool No Carbs to Mention Flounder Recipes

Hi, I only live about 40 miles from you - Southport, NC.

Flounder Baked with Lemon and Butter

Spray a foil-lined baking sheet with Pam. Place flounder filets skin-side down on foil. Sprinkle with lemon juice, dot with lots of real butter, a little salt, a little freshly ground pepper (I like using mixed peppercorns), and lay a slice of lemon on each filet. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven 10 - 15 minutes (or so). Check filets for doneness by flaking gently with a fork. Filets are done when the flesh is white and flakes easily. DO NOT OVERBAKE.

OR be fancy (and expensive, but impressive and worth it)

Top each filet with a generous dollop of fresh crab, mayonnaise, chopped scallions, finely chopped red pepper, salt, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and top the crab with more butter. Then bake as in first recipe.

OR be even fancier and wrap the flounder filets around a scoop of crab and bake. Top the crab with more butter.

Let me know how it works out for you; flounder is delicious baked this way. The trick: lots of butter and don't over-bake!
