How to Cook Frozen Flounder Fish

Save

Fkounder is usually associated with the 1980s Disney movie character in "The Little Mermaid." However, the fish is also a tasty main for any dish. The large, flat fish is found in both the Northern Pacific and Atlantic oceans. A main fish for centuries, the flounder is often preserved through freezing for future use. With a few simple techniques before cooking, flounder that has been frozen can be enjoyed year round.

Things You'll Need

  • Frozen flounder fillet
  • Large baking dish
  • Paper towel
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup fish stock
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 tsp. tarragon
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Fork
  • Place the frozen flounder in the large baking dish. Insert the dish in to the refrigerator and allow it to thaw, slowly, for 24 hours.

  • Rinse the fillet under running water. Pat it dry, gently so as not to ruin the flesh, with paper towel.

  • Grease the baking dish with butter. Place the fish in the middle of the dish.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the fish stock and white wine over the fish.

  • Sprinkle the tarragon, salt and black pepper evenly over the fish and pour the lemon juice around it. Insert the baking dish in to the oven.

  • Cook the fish for about eight minutes, or until the meat turns opaque, yet still remains moist and flakes when a fork is inserted in to the deepest part.

  • Remove the fish and serve it immediately, with the sauce drizzled over top.
