Nigel Slater's Baked Flounder with Parmesan Crumbs for Potluck

It's Potluck time at I Heart Cooking Club and I am bringing a dish from one of my favorites - Nigel Slater.  Have you ever perused one of his Kitchen Diaries cookbooks?  It's so much more than a cookbook.  As the title suggests it's a diary about his kitchen and garden interspersed with good recipes.

I have read through most of the Kitchen Diaries as well as Tender, sometimes just for the prose, visualizing his garden with the plants, the foxes and that great dining table he talks about.  But today, I bring you a recipe of Nigel's that I found in Food and Wine magazine online.  Baked Flounder with Parmesan Crumbs.

It's easy, you toss it in the oven and 15 minutes later you have a good meal.  Perfect for a workday or a lazy day.

I enjoy leaving through Tender, such a delicious read. This baked flounder sounds like something coming out from his kitchen, with a good story behind it.

I'm not a big fish lover but I do enjoy a piece of flounder once in awhile. I'll add this recipe to my list to make.

This looks super simple and sounds tasty. Flounder is one of the few kinds of fish that I eat. I really need to try Nigel Slater's recipes. I've gotten a cookbook or 2 out of the library but have never actually cooked from them.
