Flounder Recipe with Vegetables

flounder recipe

This delicious flounder recipe is almost a meal in itself.

It is a baked fish recipe, that is surrounded by vegetables while it bakes. Just add a bed of spinach and some steamed rice or rice pilaf and dinner is done.

I love easy fish recipes like this and I think you will too.

Of course we know that fish is healthy for us, but look at the wonderful vegetables this fish is cooked with. Garlic, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes are all known to be loaded with fantastic health giving properties. If you serve it on a bed of steamed spinach as suggested above you have a simple dinner recipe that provides amazing nutritional value.

It’s also gluten free, a real bonus for anyone who is gluten intolerant or who has celiac disease.
