Chimichurri Baked Flounder

Chimichurri is a tasty uncooked sauce made from fresh herbs. I love it over any type of fish, but especially over baked flounder. To save time, I gather the herbs on my chopping board and chop them all at once. —Jennifer Okutman, Westminster, Maryland

    An easy to make dish that is light yet comforting. The fish is mild but the chimichurri sauce made it tasty and vibrant. The only difference is I made my chimichurri in a food processor. It gets more blended and delicious than whisking all the ingredients together by hand.
