Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Flounder or any flaky fish work nicely with this zippy gremolata.
Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 2
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • 2 Tb. fresh, chopped mint (about a handful of leaves)
  • 1 Tb. lemon rind (about half a lemon)
  • Dash kosher salt
  • 2-3 small Flounder fillets (or any white, flaky fish)
  • Dash kosher salt
  • Dash freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tb. unsalted butter
  • Fresh lemon (for serving)
  1. Using a vegetable peeler, cut a few strips of the lemon peel/rind. Slice it into thin strips.
  2. On a large cutting board, sprinkle some salt on top of the garlic and start mincing it with the knife. Add the mint and lemon rind and continue mincing until everything has a fine texture. Store in an airtight dish in the refrigerator until ready to use (it will keep for a few days).
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium/high, then toss in the butter.
  4. Lightly sprinkle both sides of the fish with salt & pepper and place into the hot pan.
  5. Sear the first side about 2 minutes, until edges are brown and crispy. Flip and cook other side 1-2 more minutes.
  6. Remove from pan and top with a half teaspoon of the gremolata (a lot goes a long way!), sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and serve.
