Flounder is a juicy and tender white meat fish with a mild flavor. Its meat takes well to high temperatures, as the exterior forms a slightly sweet crust while the interior remains moist. Adding seasonings will introduce more flavors to the meat, complementing its natural flavor. Broiling flounder fillets cooks them quickly and sears in the meat’s natural juices. This recipe is for two flounder fillets; but you can adjust it to suit your dining needs.
