A recipe is considered a hit at my house when at least one of my kids eats it and likes it. Tonight, I made a recipe that is not only a hit but probably an all-star!!! My kids normally don’t like fish! Yet, tonight, my almost 2-year-old, ate more fish than I did. My 3-year-old at the same amount as I did (and usually he eats NO fish at all!!!) and my husband and I even liked it too!!!! Can we say SUPER-STAR?!!!! Yes, we can! I served this with Parmesan Roasted Red Potatoes and green beans. Wow, I need to be making this meal every week.
Parmesan Garlic Crusted Flounder
3/4 c. Panko
1/2 c. freshly grated parmesan
3 tsp. Italian seasoning blend
salt/pepper to taste
2-3 Tbsp. melted butter
4 flounder fillets
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Rinse fish fillets and pat dry.
In a shallow dish combine panko, parmesan, Italian seasoning and salt/pepper.
Dip fish in melted butter and then in panko mixture thoroughly coating with breading. Lay on cooking sheet.
Place in oven and bake for 14-17 minutes until fish is cooked through.
Husband Rating: Didn’t get one but does it matter when it is such a successful meal for the rest of the family? 🙂
Food for Thought: This would be easy to make and freeze ahead of time. Simply prepare the fish with their breading and then wrap in plastic wrap. Then place in a freezer bag and freeze. When ready to cook, put on a cookie sheet and bake. You will probably need to adjust cooking time for a few minutes longer to cook through.
