Parmesan-Lemon Flounder

I’ve been trying to incorporate more fish into our diet – and cook it without frying it.  The recipe I tried for flounder fillets was so good that my husband said, “You can make that again any time you want!  You can make it tomorrow, if you want to!”  The Parmesan and Panko give a crunch and the lemon flavor brightens the flavor of the plain fish.
This is outstanding!  It also comes together so quickly, making it an “Under 30 minute entree’!  I’m so glad to have this recipe in my file of fast and delicious recipes!


Parmesan-Lemon Flounder

1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
4 fillets flounder 

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan 
1/4 c. Panko bread crumbs

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Drizzle 2 tablespoons oil on a large baking sheet. Season flounder with salt and pepper.
  2. On a large plate, combine Parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper. Dredge fish in bread crumb mixture, pressing to coat.
  3. Place fish on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and lemon juice. Bake until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork, 20 minutes.

I added a baked potato and French Peas for a delicious weeknight dinner. Here’s how I make my French Peas:

French Peas

Frozen Peas
Pearl Onions
Lettuce, chopped – To a cup of peas, add 1/3 Cup lettuce
Salt and Pepper

Boil peas and pearl onions for a minute in a small amount of water.  Season with salt and pepper.  Drain water.  Add a little butter.  Pour into bowl.  Add the lettuce and mix. Serve immediately.

This recipe makes eating healthy at home a cinch!

      1. Lol, anytime I make pearly onions my husband always quotes Brisco! In our family we say that Andy Griffith and I Love Lucy are our second languages! We’re always trying to use the most obscure lines in conversations to see if anyone catches them. Several years ago, a friend of ours, who is also a big AG fan and was (at that time) a local radio host, wanted to put our oldest daughter on the radio for an Andy Griffith hour because he was amazed at how much AG trivia she knew. 😂 He wanted listeners to call in and try and stump her with the hardest AG trivia questions they could think of. She was about 12 yrs old then and too timid (at that time) to do it. She’s 20 now and says she’s probably do it now. 😁
        Glad to meet another family of Griffith fans out there! 🎣 📺 🥧❤️


      2. We indeed are huge Andy Griffith fans! Whitney has the trivia down, too! She can even tell you what season or episode a quote comes from! Let’s face it, so many quotes just wrap up every day life in a sentence! “Just call the man!” Or “What’s wrong with Barney, Pa? He’s sweeping clear down the street!” They sum it all up!! 😂
