Amazing Baked Flounder
2 boneless, skinless flounder fillets, thawed
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chives
Salt/pepper to taste
♥Chef’s Note: Line a jelly roll pan (cookie sheet with shallow sides) with aluminum foil and then place a wire cookie cooling rack over the pan. The meat goes on top of that so all the extra fat, grease, or in this case, “excess fishy taste” drips off the meat and down below. Plus, the heat circulates evenly around the meat, providing an even bake or broil without soggy patches or uncooked areas.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place flounder fillets across the metal wire rack. In a small bowl, combine the following and stir: olive oil, lemon juice, garlic powder, dill weed, paprika, dried chives (or onion powder) and salt/pepper (to taste).
Spoon or brush the marinade over the tops of the fillets and pop in the oven. Cook 20-25 minutes or until fish is slightly flaky when touched with a fork. Serve immediately.
