This recipe is also great using Tilapia. But feel free to use any fish you like! This recipe is also great using Tilapia. But feel free to use any fish you like!
Number of Servings: 4


    4 flounder fillets
    1 tbsp lemon pepper
    1 tbsp dill
    4 tbsp butter
    1 shallot, minced
    1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice


Preheat oven for 325 degrees.
Mix together lemon pepper and dill.

Place fish in an oven safe dish, large enough so the pieces will not overlap. Sprinkle spice mixture on both sides of fish. The dish does not need to be greased in any way, the moisture from the fish will prevent it from sticking. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or until fish is opaque and cooked through.

In a saucepan, heat butter and shallot over medium low heat. You want to sweat the shallot and make it soft and sweet tasting; try not to get too much more than a slight golden color to it. Adding a dash of salt and pepper will help. Once the butter is melted and the shallot is soft, add the lemon juice and stir. Set aside.

For presentation, plate up the fish and top with a teaspoon of the butter mixture.
