Flounder in Scallion and Ginger Sauce

A Supper of Flounder in Scallion and Ginger Sauce served with broccoli and a side of cottage cheese


This is great dish to cook when you’re in the mood for fish. The idea came from the South Beach Diet book by Dr. Arthur Agatson, MD. Whether or not you are trying to shed a few pounds or not try this dish. You can make the marinade ahead so when you get home from work just preheat the oven and pour the marinade over the flounder filets. Start a vegetable and by the time the oven is at temperature the flounder will have absorbed the delicious flavor.
I used flounder here but you can try it with any white fish like cod, sole or orange roughy.

To serve place the flounder on plates add steamed broccoli flowerets and cottage cheese and tomato wedges sprinkled with celery salt.

Flounder in Scallion and Ginger Sauce
Serves two


1/3 C vermouth
3 T lite soy sauce
2 t sesame oil
1/4 C finely chopped scallions (or green onions)
1/2 t ground Chinese ginger
1 t finely chopped garlic
2 – 4 flounder fillets (about a pound for 2 servings)


Preheat the oven to 400F. Mix all the ingredients except the flounder in a small bowl. Place the flounder in an oven proof dish. (If using frozen fish, be sure to thaw it first.) Drizzle the marinade over the fish then bake for 12 minutes. The fish is done when it flakes easily.
