Baked Flounder with Cornmeal Coating

Cornmeal and Fish go together like 
Peanut Butter and Miracle Whip!  

This flounder has a crisp crust, not like it’s deep-fried, but crisp enough, without the mess of grease spattering ~ healthier!  It’s simple and makes for a good meal!

Baked Flounder with Cornmeal Coating


6 flounder fillets
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
½ teaspoon paprika
½ cup cornmeal
¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
¼ cup milk
Non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a shallow dish, combine salt, pepper, paprika, cornmeal and Panko.
Dip each fillet in milk, dredge in cornmeal mixture.
Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray and place fish on it.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily and is golden, turning once.


Have a Fantastic Friday!

  4. Nice! Your intro made me smile too- "Like Peanut Butter and Miracle Whip (laugh).

  5. This sounds good. I like fried fish a lot and will try this healthier alternative.

  6. I've never tried baked fish with a crust, glad to know it works and I'm sure the panko helped with crispiness.

  7. I love flounder, I love fish, and I love baking it! I am definitely going to try your method! Now about that peanut butter in mayo comment?

  8. I'm trying to add more fish to our diet..this will be fun to try!

    I would enjoy it very much.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

  10. LOL.. okay, I'm not really sure about peanut butter and miracle whip, but I do know that fish and cornmeal go excellent together. Love that you use a little panko in there too to give it an additional crunch!
