Flounder is the most delicate fish we eat. It requires special preparation, but that’s not to say it’s complicated or time-consuming. On the contrary, it can be the quickest, easiest fish dinner you’ll ever make.
I was reading an online travel guide to Portugal recently and found an entire discussion board on restaurants that offer filleted fish, as opposed to the traditional whole fish served there. I was surprised how many people, mostly Americans, explicitly did not want to eat fish served whole.
Toby lucked upon a flounder while lobster diving in the Keys, but there was little chance of landing that fish with a lobster net and tickle stick. I swam back to the boat to get the spear as fast as I could.
