Flounder: an old favorite re-enters my daily eating habits

I can remember one September when we filled coolers of fish each weekend day, the fish were so plentiful that year. Ironically, I didn’t like flounder then but my recent re-acquaintance with it went much better.

I’ve been eating a lot more fish since my angioplasty two years ago, mostly salmon and tuna. But I’m also always looking for new varieties to try.

Flounder is delicate, so keep an eye on it while cooking. Here's mine with lots of green beans.

Recently, I ran across an old favorite in the frozen fish case, flounder.

When I was growing up in Brooklyn, the flounder would run, as its called, in September. That was when my father, mother and I would haul our fishing equipment, by subway, to the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn which has fishing piers and even fishing boats if that’s your pleasure.

Flounder is a thin, delicate fish (essentially its the same as sole). It cooks quickly, so don’t add a lot to it. I made it simply with some lemon juice and loved it.
