Ingredients

  • 1.5 lb flounder (700g)
  • 4 roma tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 1 green pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 green chili (finely diced)
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro (roughly chopped)
  • to taste salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Sauté the onions in a bit of butter over a medium until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, green pepper, green chili, water, 2 teaspoon of Creole seasoning and cover. Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Cook longer if you want it more like a relish and less like a sauce).
  • While the vegetables cook, season the flounder with the rest of the creole seasoning.
  • Heat up a second pan to a high heat and melt a knob of butter in it. Sear the flounder for approximately 1-2 minutes and then carefully transfer to the finished sauce, seared side up,.
  • Cook the fish in the sauce until fully cooked, another minute or two.
  • Before serving, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the fish and add some fresh cilantro on top.

Notes

Tips and Tricks:
1. The fish is cooked when it’s no longer translucent and flakes easily.
2. We like to serve this dish with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice and Avocado Tomato Cucumber Salad
