Flounder Fiasco – what’s with the bloopers??
Speaking of fiasco’s, I wasted some of my precious flounder last night – to think of, I switched to baking/poaching the fish instead of grilling/frying it and blew it! I thought it would be healthy, but I am made some very very basic mistakes, which I hope never to repeat. Hence the vivid documentation, you know just for the record 🙂 🙂
The process: Placed the fish fillets on a bed of fresh tomatoes, celery, spring onions and spices. Topped with some lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Closed the package and left it in the oven to bake for some 15-20 minutes.
Blooper #1: Did not dry the fish completely. The fish sort of, gave out quite a bit of water in the packet, basicallyit shouldve been completely dry so that it could cook and sort of roast.
Blooper #2: Shouldn’t have used tomatoes. You know … more water!
Blooper #3: Shouldn’t have added pepper in the package. Should’ve sprinkled it on later. For some reason, it always seems that pepper tastes hotter when it is hot 🙂
All in all the taste was not that bad, but the flounder was way too soft. I like the fish better when it is nice and flaky and can stay together.
Well, all in a day’s work. Will do a better job next time 🙂
