"Dang, it sounded good, but mine turned into packets of mush! Yuck...the flounder was fresh when I bought it, but I froze it....perhaps that made this happen even though I dried them on paper towels 1st?!"

"Baked this the other day ago. It tastes excellent, the fish comes out perfectly cooked, and it is simple to prepare. Can't ask for more than that."
