15 Minute Fish Dinner

I've never been a land-locked type of gal. I get the same feeling as I do when I'm in the middle of a big city without a car...stuck. So it's no surprise I've found myself in the Ocean State surrounded by coastline. Big bonus? Fresh fish. If you are also a Rhode Islander here is a list of local seafood suppliers.

This 15 minute flounder dinner is inspired by a dish my mother in law cooks for us on Cape Cod. I love the idea of layering two thin flounder fillets, creating a sandwich of flavor, and popping it in the oven. Done. Delicious.

serves 2

The beauty of this dinner is that it can serve 2 or 12. For a large group, stack fish on a baking sheet and rotate halfway through to ensure even cooking.

4 local flounder fillets (2 per person)
olive oil
Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
high quality flavored panko breadcrumbs (sold at the Whole Foods' fish counter)
lemon, sliced into wedges 

-Pre-heat oven to 425
-Rub olive oil on the bottom of a pan
-Lay 1 fillet down, sprinkle with salt and pepper, brush with 1/4 teaspoon (each) of Dijon mustard
-Sprinkle with panko, top with second fillet
-Again sprinkle top fillet with salt and pepper, then with panko
-Drizzle olive oil over the top
-Bake for 10-15 minutes

I served this with big lemon wedges and a huge arugula salad.
