Broiled Flounder Parmesan

  If you like fish and quick/easy dinner ideas then this oh so delicious recipe is for you! =) Since fall officially arrived on Friday my hubby and I {well to be honest it was mostly me ;)} decided to celebrate by doing a few "fall" activities. Our first order of business was to go get some apples and cider at his great uncle's orchard....which we did, but it ended up being a rainy day and not the best for hiking or anything like that. So we had a change of plans and spent the afternoon at an auction instead!
  Anyway, until we finally made it back home it had cleared up a little and Daren wanted to get some dove hunting in before dark and since I hadn't started anything for dinner we had to think of something quick and easy. We had just bought some fish and I remembered this recipe and decided that was what we would have.

Broiled Flounder Parmesan
  •  1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp celery salt
  • 2 lbs tilapia {or flounder} fillets 
 Mix together all the ingredients except for fish. Line a pan with foil. Broil fillets for 2-3 minutes. Flip and broil 2 more minutes. Remove from oven and top with the cheese mixture. Broil for 2 minutes or until topping browns and fish flakes with a fork. Do not overcook!
  What made this even better was that Daren fixed it while I cooked some rice etc...=) The recipe originally says to use tilapia and we normally do, but flounder is what we had this time and it was just as good. Fresh fish is definitely better, but frozen is what we used and it was still yummy. I like to make rice pilaf with this, but I didn't have any and was in a hurry so just used brown rice. It is good just doesn't make as colorful of a plate as I like to see. =) 
  We still didn't get finished in time for Daren to get his hunting in, so we just went for a walk instead. Which I thought was a better idea anyway! ;) He wanted to walk around some of the corn fields and look for deer and we did get to see a doe and fawn! All in all it was a great start to the fall even if it didn't go like I had first planned!
The Lord your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
~Zephaniah 3:17 
Blessings always! =)
