On-hand ingredients + 2 Buck Chuck

Bonus - my boys caught the fish on their 1st charter boat trip :)

Flounder Packets with Lemon, Wine & Capers

1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
8-12 thin slices of lemon
3 tablespoons dry white wine (or 2-buck Chuck!)
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Couple of twists of Pepper
4 - 4-6 ounce fresh flounder/fluke fillets

Preheat oven to *400

Combine green onions, parsley and capers in a small bowl.

Whisk lemon juice, wine, and melted butter in a small bowl.

Rinse and pat dry fish fillets.  Give a quick twists of pepper.

Prepare 4-sheets of heavy duty foil.  Start layering ingredients on foil 
squares(folded up so the liquids don’t spill all over), like so:

2-3 lemon slices
Fish fillets
Lemon juice, wine and melted butter mixture
Green onion, parsley and caper mixture

Fold and secure foil packets 
(leaving space above fish for steam to rise).

Bake for 20 minutes.  Let stand for 5-10 minutes.

Serve.  With the rest of the 2-Buck Chuck!

Thanks for visiting!
