I craved for fish last night and lucky me, there was a small pack of frozen flounder fillets in our fridge.  I initially thought of baking it with instant Kraft salad dressing, but I decided to try something new, so I ended up formulating my own concoction.  LOL.  I know, that sounds too cocky.  I'm no chef, so I don't have the right to say that.  I guess I've been watching too many Iron Chef battles and Chopped episodes lately, hence, I was in a kitchen stadium mood last night.

Almond Baked Flounder

This is actually a pretty basic recipe.  Not a lot of cooking skills needed. As long as you know how to turn the oven on, then you're good to go :D

4 flounder fillets
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon ground chilli pepper
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/8 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
sliced almonds
baking dish

1.  Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.  Season fish fillets with salt, black pepper, chilli pepper, and garlic powder.
3.  Place seasoned fish fillets in a shallow baking dish.
4.  Mix olive oil and lemon juice.
5.  Pour mixture into seasoned fish fillets (or if you wish a dry variety, just brush the mixture onto fillets).
6.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
7.  Boil broccoli heads.
8.  Melt butter in a pan and saute onion and almond.  Add parsley.
9.  Sprinkle sauteed onion, almond and parsley onto baked fish fillets.
10.  Place broccoli on a plate, and layer baked fish fillets on top (and pour residual dressing if you wish).
11.  Serve with a smile !

Although not seen in the picture above, I also prepared a bowl of sweet corn kernels on the side for a contrast taste to the sour flavor of lemon ;)

So after the kitchen stadium, I was presented to the chopping board, and the verdict:

Don't you pity this guy?  Left all alone?  Not too long though, because I had him for lunch just now :D

Please select one:

a) Vince and I were both famished.
b) The meal was really good.
c) Vince and I just love to eat anything.
d) All of the above.

Regardless of what you're answer is, by the looks of what was left over, I don't think I was CHOPPED.  Hehe!  Until my next concoction ... err recipe :p
