My mate tried one last year against my advice and decided "yuk". Don't think he will do it again. Mind you some folk will eat any old rubbish, I even know a bloke who eats the occasional pout which is even more yuk.

I have never eaten a flounder caught this time of year but the winter ones are good , skinned fillets smothered in a mixture of mayonaise and mustard powder (heavy on the mustard as it cooks out) and baked on a tray.
Nowt wrong with pout but you have to keep `em right.,gutted and cooled asap . Most fish will `go off 'and taste muddy if left in a bag in the sun for any length of time, a cool box and ice packs make all the difference , gotta be better than a mc donalds.

Can't agree with sniggle, if you have to smother a fish in seasoning to make it taste anywhere near acceptable then it can't be much cop in my opinion.

Well done with the brill , what size was it ? Anyway i`m not suprised that you prefer brill to flounder as i rate brill the same as turbot. Much better than bass and most other uk fish .

the flounder you caught? did you catch it in an estuary? or very close in?

if you go out on a boat and get a flounder id reccomend keeping them they taste great! :D

flounders,fillet them,then soak them in a mixture of cold tap water (or still spring water if your that posh) and white vinegar about an 80/20 mix for a few hours this gets rid of the muddyness (we used to do this with river fish) then dry off lightly season dredge in plain flour and shallow fry.yum

but then i have no taste buds from years of curry abuse :D

If you fillet flounder and let them soak overnight in the fridge then this is supposed to get rid of the nasty soily taste, not for me Im afraid. keith :( :( :( :(
