Pan Fried Wild Caught Flounder Fillets

The first trip to our vacation home was a fair amount of work.  Most vacations we eat out two to three meals daily plus snacks.  Although we don't eat a lot of snacks I tend to bring a few pieces of fruit and beverages up to the room.  We bought the vacation home in an area we are quite familiar with and one in which we have rented houses with cooking facilities several times.  The beauty of a vacation home even a rental is you can greatly reduce the cost of meals especially breakfasts and dinners.  My goal to to get the vacation home to the point that we eat out as part of our entertainment much the same way we do at home with all other meals eaten at the vacation home.

pan fried flounder
I picked up wild caught flounder fillets.  This is a white, flaky, mild flavoured fish.  It is almost sweet with nutlike undertones.  Flounder can be steamed, poached, broiled, baked and panfried.  This really was a very simple meal!  There was minimal prep and I used up a bit of left-overs.  I paired the fish with left-over homemade potato salad, baby carrots, cucumber salad and cottage cheese. 

Cucumber Salad - Peel and slice one cucumber.  Thinly slice one quarter of a red onion.  Place in bowl then pour enough white vinegar (5% acetic acid) over the vegetables.  Let sit at least 1 hour covered in the refrigerator before serving.
