Uh oh, here we go again! Ben is back with his guest post column entitled One Tablespoon Testosterone, or OTT for short. Enjoy!
I love fish. Not as pets, but cooked up and served on a plate. While some may not because it tastes and smells “fishy”, I do and I won’t apologize for it. I have had some fantastic complicated fish dishes; but when I really get a craving, I often want something simple. And that takes me back to my childhood and the delicious, yet simple, baked fish my mom would make.
While there were several seasoning variations she used, one of my favorites that I’ve adapted uses just three ingredients besides the flounder: butter, dill, and lime juice. I can’t honestly say how close this is to what my mom made, but it does remind me of it. And if she cares to correct the error of my ways, then she can. But you know what, Mom? I’m an adult, and I can make my fish the way I please…so there.
OTT: Baked Flounder
click to print
- 4 fresh (or frozen) flounder fillets
- 2 T butter
- 1/4 t dill weed
- 1 T lime juice
Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees. Get out a large baking dish (maybe two if your fish is large) and grease it. Leave it be for the moment and melt the butter in a small dish. Add the lime juice and the dill weed, then stir it together. Rub the mixture on both sides of each fish fillet and place in the baking dish. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the fish flakes with a fork. And voila, simple yet flavorful fish.
Time: 25 minutes.
Yield: 4 servings.
