“I watched Alton Brown make this recipe on one of his weekend marathon episodes. Even though I haven't made it yet, it looked delicious, so I'm posting it here for safe-keeping. I also read most of the 72 reviews posted on the Food network site, (4 out of 5 stars) and the biggest complaint was about the flounder turning 'mushy'. Many used other kinds of white fish with excellent results.”
