This is a horrible recipe- wanted to make a different type of flounder dish and I wound up wasting half of my flounder because the "batter" destroyed the dish. The batter is way too watery and the fish started falling apart in the pan, before it even got to the oven. Would not have been edible at all. Had to start my dinner all over again and baked the flounder in the oven with some garlic, salt, and pepper. Then I just made my own butter/wine sauce and drizzled it over the fish at the end of baking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe and I have to say it was not edible. The batter was good,(a bit cheesy) but the sauce was awful. It ruined the entire dish. It tasted like I poured lemonade over my chicken. I had to throw it away. It really isnt even a francaise sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published

We invited some friends at the last minute to join us for dinner. This went together very quickly and was enjoyed by all. If you ever find yourself with flounder and have no Idea what to do with it, this is the recipe for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is easy and tasty. The parmesan and lemon complement the delicate taste of the flounder. Plate appeal is lacking, though. Also, I had a lot of the batter left over and it seems a waste to me--next time I make it, I'm going to half the batter ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
