How to fry flounder

– 1 fish weighing 500 grams
Flour – 5 tablespoons
Onion – 1 piece
Pepper – to taste
Salt – to taste
Vegetable oil – 3 tablespoons

Preparation for frying
If the flounder is frozen, it must be thawed at room temperature. If the fish is fresh, immediately proceed to cutting. Put the flounder on the board with a light belly up, cut along and gut. Rinse thoroughly under cold running water. Place the fish on a cutting board and cut off the tail, head and fins. The fins must be cut very carefully as they are very sharp. Peel the small scales from the skin of the flounder, rub it with salt and pepper, leave it in a marinating plate for 20 minutes. Cut the fish into pieces and roll in flour. Peel the onion, finely chop.

How to fry flounder in a pan
Heat vegetable oil in a pan. The temperature must be high, otherwise the flounder may stick to the pan during frying. Place the fish pieces in the pan.
To avoid an unpleasant smell when frying, sprinkle the fish with chopped onions. Fry for 7 minutes over medium heat without a lid. Turn the fish over, fry for another 7 minutes on the other side. When frying, occasionally shake the pan, then the fish will not stick to the bottom.
