Dill Flounder with Green Salad

If you are in the mood of a lighter dish, this dill flounder with green salad is the perfect recipe. And the best part is that it is super easy and fast to make.

Flounder is a very thin fish and is ready within minutes. That is why I prepare the salad and the dressing before. Once the flounder is in the pan, your meal will be ready within approximately 2 minutes, depending on how big the fillet is.

I use butter lettuce for this recipe because of its mild flavor. But feel free to use the lettuce of your choice.

Now that spring is slowly approaching a light meal like this one is perfect for the warmer days. It tastes really delicious and will give you a good portion of your daily veggies.

Happy cooking
