Flounder is a great fish to bake in the oven. It is much more suited to this cooking method than grilling because of its flat shape and delicate flesh. You can also braise it in a large pan with tomato or some shellfish. It’s a really easy fish to eat because it doesn’t contain many small bones. This recipe includes bread, which gives it a bit of crispiness and is a great companion to the sweet flavour of the flounder. You will need two roasting trays or tins to bake the four flounder. Serve with a salad or steamed vegetables.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4 flounder, 300-400 grams each
1 loaf day old bread
150ml extra virgin olive oil
1 whole lemon, plus extra lemon wedges to serve
1 garlic clove, chopped
15 grams fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
sea salt
freshly ground black pepepr

Method

  1. Wash and gut the fish. Cut around the head with a sharp knife and push your fingers under the skin to peel it off – it should come off easily in one piece. You can also peel the white skin off the bottom of the fish, but it’s not essential.
  2. Cut the crusts off the bread and cut the bread into 2 cm cubes. Place the bread in a food processor with all the remaining ingredients and blend into coarse crumbs. Season with salt and pepper. The mixture should taste nice and lemony.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  4. Place the fish on two baking trays. Season the flounder well and spread the bread mixture evenly over each fish. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the crust on the top is crispy. Serve with the lemon wedges for squeezing over the fish.
