Baked “Fried” Flounder

By Kosher Guru / October 24, 2018

When I was younger I remember my Mom always making dinner for my father fresh right when he came home. Naturally his dinners always looked so yummy we used to want to try his food. One go to dinner she made for my father was fried founder which my Grand Mother would always make for my Grandfather and myself as well. I remember the expert care of dredging and spicing the bread crumb to perfection. Then the sliced onions that went into the pan.  The onions gave the fish this yummy flavor. The fish was always fried to perfection. I really have such fond memories of these dinners. Well it’s time to upgrade this childhood memory and make it more user friendly and not to mention a little healthier, so I baked my flounder. I found a high heat made it yummy and crispy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside, just like I remembered, and the onions oh my they are so good. Melt in your mouth sweetness! I hope you try it out and let me know what you think!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs founder (it was 2 large pieces of fish)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup matza meal
  • 1/ 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/ 2 tsp garlic powder
  • Pinch black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 large onion sliced thin
  • Cooking spray
  • Oil for Drizzling

Directions

  • Cut the founder into smaller pieces I had two pieces of flounder so I cut it into about 12 smaller pieces.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl whisk the 2 eggs.
  • In a separate bowl add the Panko, matza meal and spices, the  salt and pepper (you can taste breading to see if you need to add any more seasoning like salt and pepper).
  • Dredge the flounder into the egg mixture making sure it’s well coated.
  • Then dredge fish into the Panko bread crumb mixture and place on the baking sheet repeat until all the fish has been egged and breaded.
  • Slice an onion into thin slices and spread around the fish.
  • Coat the breaded fish with cooking spray and drizzle oil on the fish making sure each piece gets a nice drizzle.
  • Bake on 400 degrees for 10/15 min on each side turning over in the middle until it’s a golden brown color and onions are soft.

Serve with tartar sauce which is the way I enjoy it.

Enjoy!
