The bed of lime slices not only adds flavor, it also keeps the fish from sticking.
Ingredients

fresh lime(s)

4 medium

uncooked flounder fillet(s)

2 pound(s), or other flat white fish

olive oil

2 Tbsp

kosher salt

1 tsp

chili powder

1 tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Thinly slice 3 limes; place slices in a single layer on prepared pan. Place fish filets on top of lime slices in an even layer (it’s OK if they overlap a little bit); evenly brush with oil. Evenly sprinkle salt and chile powder over fish. Roast until fish is flaky and opaque, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. While fish is roasting, finely grate zest from remaining lime; place it in a small bowl. Squeeze juice from lime directly on zest (remove any seeds); stir to combine.
  4. Drizzle lime juice and zest mixture over hot fish; use a spoon to break fish into bite-size pieces. Serve immediately.
  5. Serving size: 3 oz
