Lemon flounder with a warm potato salad


  • Cook the potatoes in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until almost tender. Drain well.
  • Then heat a little oil in a large non-stick pan and gently saute the onion until lightly coloured. Add the potatoes, toss to coat well and set aside.
  • Score the flesh of the flounders 3 times on both sides. Then flour and season.
  • Heat a thin layer of fresh oil in a large pan and cook the fish, one at a time, seasoning and squeezing with lemon juice once you turn over.
  • To make the dressing, whisk the extra virgin olive oil with the vinegar, garlic, mustard and seasonings. Toss potatoes with dressing to taste and the parsley.
  • Place the fish on individual plates and serve with a mound of the salad and a lemon wedge alongside.
