Fresh or frozen?

While it's always nice to have a good selection of fresh wild seafood nearby, it's not possible for everyone. That's why we're happy to report that fresh flounder recipes and frozen flounder recipes are interchangeable. Some Alaskan flounder and sole can be cooked from frozen, and others can simply be thawed, but the results will be the same: DELICIOUS. The benefit to frozen seafood is convenience and price. Ordering flounder online and ordering sole online means fast delivery to your door and a stock of top-quality seafood in your freezer whenever you need it.

What goes well with white fish?

Pasta goes great with white fish such as flounder and sole. Mix it in with the fish or serve it on the side. For lower calorie options, use a lighter sauce or dressing, or a simple drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of cheese works well too. Rice is another great option for a side. Whether plain steamed white rice or a fancier rice pilaf, it's a healthy and satisfying addition to your flounder or sole meal. Don't skimp on the fresh vegetables; salads of all kinds go great with a freshly baked white fish fillet. If you're looking for more veggies in your diet but desire something warmer than a salad, go for sliced and steamed veggies such as zucchini and yellow squash or fresh steamed snap peas.
