Flounder with Tomato, Olive and Parsley Salad recipe, brought to you by MiNDFOOD.

Best cooked whole, flounder is delicate and subtle in flavour and needs little enhancement other than a sprinkling of chopped parsley, tomatoes and a little butter.

Serves 4

5 tomatoes, halved

½ cup pitted green olives, sliced

1 cup flat leaf parsley leaves

salt and pepper

4 whole flounders

½ cup plain flour 
¼ cup olive oil

40g butter

2 lemons, halved

1 Remove seeds from tomatoes and dice. 
Place into a bowl. Add olives and parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

2 Lightly coat flounder with flour. Heat 
1 tbsp oil and half the butter in a large 
non-stick frying pan over medium heat. When butter is sizzling, add a flounder to pan. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a tray and cover to keep warm. Cook remaining flounder, adding more oil and butter as required.
