Flounder fillets are high in vitamin B12, potassium and omega-3 acids. Flounder can be prepared using a variety of cooking methods, such as baking, frying and broiling. Broiling the flounder in the oven gives it a crisp and golden brown texture. The broiler applies direct heat to the flounder fillets, which cooks them quickly. Customize the flounder fillets by adding your favorite marinades and seasonings so the fish suits your tastes.
Things You'll Need
- Paper towels
- Baking sheet
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Olive oil
Heat the broiler in the oven. Rinse the flounder fillets and pat them dry with paper towels.
Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Arrange the flounder fillets onto the baking sheet in a single layer. Don't let the fillets touch each other.
Brush olive oil over the fillets. Sprinkle pepper and salt over the flounder fillets.
Place the flounder 3 inches from the broiler. Cook the fillets for five to seven minutes or until they are golden brown and flake with a fork. Avoid overcooking the flounder because it affects the texture and the flavor.
Remove the flounder from the oven. Serve the fillets immediately.
