Quick & Easy Baked Flounder with Fresh Lemon Pepper

Baked Flounder with Fresh Lemon Pepper Recipe at 31Daily.com

When spring rolls around, I’m all in on fish, asparagus… and completely quick and easy. This dish has it all covered. When you need to get dinner on the table — and back off again quickly, this is a great meal to add to your weekly menu. And not to mention, healthy too. Serve with steamed or roasted asparagus. I absolutely love roasted asparagus for its almost nutty flavor. I add mine to the 1 baking sheet you’ll use in this recipe and with 1 pan — I’m done. It doesn’t get better than that.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons grated lemon rind (about 3 lemons)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 1/4 teaspoons black peppercorns, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets
Cooking spray
Lemon wedges (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Combine first 5 ingredients. Place fillets on a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Rub garlic mixture evenly over fillets. Bake at 425° for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
