How To Make Flounder Mediterranean


5 roma (plum) tomatoes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Spanish onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pinch Italian seasoning
1/4 cup white wine
24 kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
4 tablespoons capers
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
6 leaves fresh basil, chopped
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound flounder fillets
6 leaves fresh basil, torn


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Plunge tomatoes into the boiling water, and immediately remove to a medium bowl of ice water. Drain, and remove skins. Chop, and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute onion until tender. Stir in garlic and Italian seasoning. Stir in tomatoes, and cook until tender. Mix in wine, olives, capers, lemon juice, and 1/2 the basil. Reduce heat, blend in Parmesan cheese, and cook until the mixture is reduced to a thick sauce, about 15 minutes.

Place flounder in a shallow baking dish. Cover with the sauce, and top with remaining basil leaves.

Bake 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
