Baked Flounder Filets – 20 Minutes – Quick and Easy – Gluten Free

Posted in : Gluten Free, Quick and Easy, seafood on by : poppop

Baked Flounder Filets were..

…what we had almost every Friday when I was growing up in a little town in Northern New Jersey called North Arlington. Our mom worked in Newark and she rode buses back and forth to work.

On weeknights she would get home about 5:45 to 6:00, kick off her high heels and throw supper together while my sister, Loretta aka Woogie, and I set the table.

We always had fish on Fridays and flounder was a regular. Some of the fish were seasonal but fresh flounder was always available. This is the Quick and Easy way that our mom got the Friday night Baked Flounder supper on the table.

Mom would turn on the oven and grease a baking sheet for the flounder. Laid the filets out on the sheet “flat side down”. Sprinkled salt, pepper and paprika on them.

Into the oven for about 8-10 Minutes then under the broiler for about 3-4 minutes.

While that was going on she would heat up some kind of canned vegetable and whenever we had fish she would always throw together some mac and cheese. The mac and cheese involved boiling elbow macaroni, straining it, then mixing in chunks of Velveeta cheese until the cheese melted. That was it.

To this day, I still hate canned vegetables and Velveeta cheese.

After supper Woogie would wash and I would dry.

Here is tonight’s  – One Pan – Quick and Easy – Baked Flounder. With some oven baked zucchini “fries” right in the same pan.

Set the oven at 450°F/232°C. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil. Or, use a non stick pan like this one in the pics.

Rinse off the zucchini and cut them up like this….

It’s pretty hard (most times impossible) to find fresh flounder here in Texas so this is our go to frozen brand.

Rinse off the flounder filets and pat them dry with paper towels.

Spread the zucchini out with the pointy side sticking up and the flounder with the “flat side down”. Sprinkle with some salt, pepper and paprika. I couldn’t stop myself from also adding a little grated parmesan cheese.
