Baked Lemony Flounder

Flounder is an excellent source of high-quality protein. Eating grilled flounder is a heart-healthy way to incorporate essential nutrients into your diet. The American Heart Association recommends eating baked or grilled fish at least two times each week, or about 7 ounces per week.

Eat This With That

This dish pairs very well with a side of Rosemary & Garlic Oven Roasted Potatoes or as I have done here, a side of Quinoa Salad with Kale and Feta .  This makes for a delicious and filling lunch or dinner.

If a lighter meal is what you are looking for, enjoy this fish dish with an Arugula Salad.  Enjoy!
