Fried Flounder Recipe
This fried flounder recipe uses a batter made with dried dill weed and cider vinegar. Once I have made
the batter I like to place all my flounder fish piece in batter and let them sit in it and absorb the flavors.
When adding the battered fish to your pan make sure to let the excess drain off and slowing add each piece.
Do not add to many pieces at once, because this will cook your oil done and make your fish soggy and oily.
Also if your fillets are thin you might have to adjust the frying time.
