Poached Flounder Recipe

Poached Flounder

This poached flounder recipe is tasty, easy to make and is healthy.


2 lbs. of flounder fillets            ½ cup sliced mushrooms
2 garlic cloves – minced          ½ Tsp. of paprika
1 Tbsp. of olive oil                     2 Tbsp. of fresh parsley
2/3 cup chicken stock
2 Tbsp. of lemon juice
1 Tbsp. of lemon zest


Put the oil in a large heated skillet. Add the minced garlic and cook until tender. Do not let it get dark brown or burn – terrible taste. Anyway, once tender, add the lemon juice, lemon zest and chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and add the flounder and simmer   until the flounder can flake easily with a fork – about five minutes. Once flounder is done, remove from the skillet and place on a plate and cover with aluminum foil.

Continue cooking ingredients in the skillet until it reduces by about half. Add the mushrooms and cook until tender – maybe two to three minutes. Add paprika, salt and pepper to taste.

Cook another minute and remove from heat. Pour over the flounder, sprinkle on the fresh parsley and serve.
