The Best Years in Life
Here's a light fish that’s both tasty and easy to make. Beautiful red pepper, crunchy pine nuts and Italian breadcrumbs complement high-protein flounder, adding soft flavor and texture to this simple fish. A good source of vitamins B6 and B12, phosphorous and selenium, this is a great recipe for cancer prevention and overall good health. The healthiest flounder is U.S. Pacific Wild Caught Flounder.
Flounder with Peppers and Toasted Pine Nuts
(As always, for the very healthiest versions of any recipe choose organic content as much as possible.)
1. Toast pine nuts by placing them in a hot skillet and stirring frequently over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes. Be careful not to let them burn. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. Rinse fish and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Dust with breadcrumbs.
3. In a large skillet, melt butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add fish and let cook for at least 4 minutes until golden on one side. Flip over and cook other side for about 3 minutes until fish is cooked through.
4. Remove fish from pan and set aside.
5. Add shallots, garlic, and pepper strips to hot pan and sauté until fragrant and slightly wilted, about 2 minutes.
6. Add vinegar and stock. Increase heat to high and boil until liquid is reduced by half, about 2-3 minutes. Pour pepper mixture over the fish.
7. Top with pine nuts and fresh basil. Serve immediately.
