If you’re looking for flounder recipes, we’ve got 25 amazing flounder recipes right here for you!
Flounder is a great white fish choice for a low-fat, low-calorie meal that is a source of protein.
A typical white fish choice is tilapia, but unlike tilapia, flounder has omega-3 fats, making it a better option. Do you prefer tilapia or flounder?
If you’re looking for a side dish to go with flounder, try these Roasted Carrots! The roasting really brings out the sweetness of the carrot and caramelizes in the high heat – they’re deliciously addicting!
When I cook fish, I like to serve a heavier side dish since fish is pretty light. A simple filling side is potatoes, chopped and sprinkled with salt and pepper, cooked in a cast-iron skillet until tender. (I use cast-iron because it cooks more evenly than a normal skillet!)
A low-carb option is broccoli and cauliflower – I toss it with about a teaspoon of oregano and a drizzle of olive oil, salt-and-pepper it, and roast at 400F for 15-20 minutes. When it comes out of the oven, squeeze a tablespoon or two of fresh lemon juice over it.

What do you eat with flounder?
Grilled or roasted vegetables are my go-to fish sides, as well as rice and a salad. Consider what flavor profile your flounder recipe has (Italian? southwest? Asian? lemon-garlic?) and match your side dish. For example, you wouldn’t do an Italian flounder recipe and serve it with fried rice. You could choose a grilled flatbread, roasted vegetables, or pasta. Fried rice would go great with flounder that has Asian-inspired flavors.
