Recently when I was food shopping at Asian market ,I saw some big size flounder on the fish counter. Of course ,I'm going to get it !! I loves any type of fish but flounder or fluke is one of my favourite!! The flesh of flounder is really fine and smooth compare with other fish.But to get a fresh flounder here is really challenging since the flounder season is over now. I guess the flounder I bought was thawed flounder but it's OK since it's look fresh and good!! I recalled it's been a while since I eat pan-fried flounder.Enjoying flounder at the Chinese restaurant is convenience ,don't bother with cooking and cleaning but it's also quite pricey not to said it's a distant for me to travel to best Chinatown Chinese restaurant in Queens NYC.So to solve my craving I better cook this flounder myself at home..It's superb delicious and yummy!!
