Are you a lover of Dover Sole? If so, then you’ll also love Fluke, sometimes called Summer Flounder. These mottled and darkish flatfish are a good choice for landlubbers, since they are extremely mild flavored, with a lean, firm white flesh and delicate flake.
Because they’re so flat, Flukes are often referred to as doormats or snow shoes!
To really enjoy the subtle flavor of Fluke, be sure not to overshadow it with too many spices, herbs and sauces. A simple steam, poach, bake, broil, sauté, fry or microwave works best, enhanced with a bit of lemon, olive oil or butter.
As healthy as it is versatile, Fluke is a good source of protein, Niacin, B Vitamins, Phosphorus, Calcium and Selenium while being low in fat.
