Great easy meal. The hubs and kids loved it. I followed directions to a tee audit turned out great. Next time I am going to line the pan with foil for easier clea up and I think Ill add some dill and capers. Yummy!

The taste is good but mine came out mushy.

The flavor was fabulous, I can't understand why my Flounder always comes out mushy though. I have tried this 2ce the second time I added 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and 1/4 tsp dill weed. even more flavorful! My husband is not a fish eater but he enjoys this!

Love this recipe, easy and so good. My husband even likes it and he hates mayonnaise.

Tweaked this yummy fish after reading comments. I broiled it instead baking it. I brushed melted butter and lemon juice on the flounder prior to broiling the flounder. Broiled till half way of cooking time (ex 6 minutes total time). SO at 3 minutes I put the Parmesan mixture on a returned to broiler! Delightfully delicious and firm!

A great recipe for kids who may not like strong tasting fish. I followed other reviewers advice and patted the fish dry (frozen and thawed IQF flounder) and then brushed with lemon juice. Then under the broiler for 3 minutes. I mixed the parm, mayo and some italian style bread crumbs together and added the mix to the broiled fish and returned to the oven for another 3-4 min under the broiler, watching to make sure it didn't burn. Delicious! Even my non-fish eater son ate it without complaint. Thanks for a recipe I can use on other fish filets!

This is a super easy recipe and tasty as well. After reading the comments about being mushy I decided to broil the fish and not bake it. Flounder is so thin, it is easy to overcook. I prepared the topping as per recipe but used a few finely chopped leek pieces instead of green onions. I ommitted the butter as I was using lower fat mayo and adding butter seemed counterproductive! I broiled until I could see it getting a bit flaky. Midway through, I used a knife to respread the mayo mix so it would not burn. Turned out perfect and not mushy! M.A.

4 stars for being easy and fairly quick on a busy weeknight. I only used 3 T butter, but could easily nix it altogether next time and sub out another T of mayo. I used a LOT more lemon juice than called for since I love the citrusy zing it imparts on fish. To the mayo/cheese mixture, I sprinkled in some onion & garlic powders, paprika, some dried parsley and dried chopped onion since I didn't have green. I also liberally sprinkled the same spice mixture over the fish and used sea salt to taste. I didn't want to bother with lining and/or cleaning a baking dish, so I just sprayed Pam in a foil 9x13" pan. DH really liked it; so did I, but it's not the healthiest dinner ever, so it'll be reserved for a "once in a while" meal. Thanks!
