How long should I cook flounder fillet in a pan?

I really enjoy cooking flounder on the stove top in a pan. Flounder is a delicate and mild fish and does really well for quick dinners. Because flounder is so delicate and cooks so quickly, be sure to not overcook it! You want to cook the flounder 3-4 minutes on each side (depending on size). I cut my fillets in half, therefore, the cooking time is less, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

This flounder with vegetable can be served with your favorite side. You can serve it with mashed potatoes, rice, or buttered pasta.

Since the dish is already loaded with vegetables, you don’t need a side salad to serve with this dish. That’s what I’m talking about.
