Crunchy Baked Flounder and Bacon Mac & Chesse

So, the hubs caught some flounder last week, but we were stumped on how to fix it so he did some googling and found this awesome recipe from MyRecipes.com. Oh my word – this was so good.  It was also super easy and quick to make which is my kind of meal. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  The only things I did slightly different was also added a tad bit of salt and pepper to the breading mix, put the breading mixture on both sides of the filets (not just the top), and baked mine at 420 for 10 minutes because my oven cooks very hot. This recipe would be great on tilapia too, which is cheaper on the wallet at the store.

Pardon the terrible pic and my fork!

Pardon the terrible pic and my fork!

What ya need:

*4 filets of flounder

*1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs

*1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

*3 tbsp butter, melted

*salt and pepper to taste

 

What ya do:

*Lightly spray a baking dish with non-stick spray.

*Melt your butter.

*Mix your panko, parmesan and butter together with a little salt and pepper.

*Lightly salt and pepper both sides of your filets.

*Place your filets in the baking dish and generously sprinkle the panko/parmesan/butter mixture on each side.

*Bake at 420 for 10 minutes or until breading is golden.

 

We also had our favorite sauteed green beans and then made bacon mac and cheese. We rarely make carbs with our meals and if we do its wild or brown rice, but we wanted to see if we could re-create our favorite restaurant’s (Killen’s Steakhouse) mac and cheese. I used whole wheat Kraft mac & cheese from the box, but added more shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled up bacon to change it up a bit.  Its not as good as Killen’s, but we did really enjoy the bacon flavor with the mac and cheese.

Enjoy!

 

–UPDATE — So, we used the breading mix with tilapia, but it was not as good as the flounder.  It was ok, but we probably won’t use this recipe with tilapia again.  Gotta go catch some more flounder!!
