Inspired by - BonAppetit

What do you do when you have to make a last minute meal decision, have enough fish in the freezer to give you plenty of options, but still want to try something new? I think I've found the one. This recipe has the three qualities we all love: Quick, Easy, Delicious.


  1. Flounder

  2. Basil leaves (a half a cup or so)

  3. Grape tomatoes (you can use any kind of tomatoes, these are just a good size)

  4. 3 Garlic cloves

  5. 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  6. 2 tablespoons olive oil

  7. Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prepare all of the ingredients. Cut the grape tomatoes in half, mince the garlic, squeeze your lemons (hope you're using fresh lemons).

  2. Line a baking pan (a long one) with the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, tomatoes, and basil.

  3. Bake at 425 for 5 minutes.

  4. Lay the flounder on top and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Cook approximately 10 more minutes.

  6. Enjoy!
