*This delicious fish, from the March 2010 issue of Southern Living, was dinner tonight, along with Carmelized Green Beans. (Thanks, Rachel!) It was a crowd pleaser & was really easy. I used frozen flounder fillets that had the skin removed & were pretty thin, so I cooked it a couple of minutes less than directed. Enjoy!
1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp paprika
4 (6-oz) flounder fillets
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 C butter
2 T fresh lemon juice
Place one oven rack 5 inches from heat; place a second rack in middle of oven. Combine Parmesan cheese & paprika. Season fish with salt & pepper.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat butter in a broiler-safe 9x13 baking dish in oven 8 minutes or until butter is melted & beginning to brown. Place fish in hot butter, skin sides up.
Bake at 450 degrees on middle oven rack 10 minutes. Carefully flip fish, basting with pan juices. Sprinkle with lemon juice & Parmesan mixture. Bake 5 more minutes or just until fish flakes with a fork. Remove from oven; increase oven temperature to broil.
Broil fish on oven rack 5 inches from heat 2-3 minutes or until bubbly & golden brown.
