Basil-Parmesan Marinated Flounder


  • 4 medium flounder fillets, (or other white fish)
  • ⅓ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 8 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic, pressed
  • ⅛ teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

Heat the oven to 400° F.

In a small nonreactive bowl, combine basil, oil, vinegar, 6 tablespoons Parmesan, garlic, pepper and salt. Place fillets in a baking dish and pour marinade over them. Marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, turning once.

Spoon excess marinade from dish. Sprinkle 2 tablespoon Parmesan over fillets. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cut into halves.
