Yellowtail Flounder

Yellowtail Flounder post 1

Yellowtail Flounder is one of the most popular of North Atlantic Flounders. As a Groundfish, they are flat and have eyes on the upper side of their body. Mildly sweet, fine and delicate, flounder is delicious pan-fried, baked, or simply broiled with a little lemon. Or, try pan-frying your flounder with egg batter and green garlic!
