Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Warm oven to 200 degrees F. or lowest setting - to keep fish warm.
  2. Mix the flour with the salt and pepper on a large plate.
  3. Dredge the flounder in the flour, shake off excess, and dip in the beaten egg.
  4. Combine the butter and oil in a large saute pan and put over med-high heat.
  5. Add the flounder fillets and saute quickly, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Remove from the pan and set aside in a warm oven.
  7. To the same pan, add the almonds and saute briefly, then add banana slices.
  8. Hold pan away from the heat (very important so it doesn't flame) and add rum. * Never pour rum directly from the bottle into a hot pan, since it is highly flamable.
  9. Return the pan to heat.
  10. Add the butter and nutmeg - adjust seasoning.
  11. Cook briefly and pour sauce over the flounder.
  12. Enjoy!
