Country-Fried Flounder

Frying is a way of life in the country. The richness of buttermilk batter around your flounder makes every bite incredibly moist and extremely satisfying.

Serves 6



  1. Skin fillets and cut them into serving size portions.
  2. Combine cornmeal with seasonings. Roll fish in cornmeal mixture.

Pan Fry:

  1. Place flounder in an iron skillet that has been preheated with about 1/8 inch of oil.
  2. Brown on one side 2 - 3 minutes. Carefully turn and cook on the other side an additional 3 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  3. Serve with tartar sauce and coleslaw.

Chef's Tip:

Marinate the fish in buttermilk for one hour prior to frying for a moist, authentic taste.

Beverage suggestions:

Light lager beer, Chenin Blanc
