Dijon Broiled Flounder

Sanjiv Singh
I don't think cooking fish comes any simpler than this. In contrast to the catfish recipe above, this one is mild, but has a nice smack of Dijon. This is the just the thing when you get home and want to get a good meal (maybe even break out the wine and candles) and leave for a movie all within the hour. I like to serve this with the Spicy Steamed Broccoli . For wine, you would do well with a Chardonnay or Gewurtraminer.
Serves 2-3.

1 lb flounder or another thinly filleted fish
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
5-6 cherry tomatoes

Preheat the broiler until it is good and hot. Mix the Dijon and mayonnaise. Coat the fish with the sauce and lay it out in a single layer in a baking pan. Arrange the cherry tomatoes in between the fillets. Put the baking dish 2 inches away from the broiler and broil for 4 minutes checking to make sure the fish doesn't burn. Remove the baking dish, turn around 180 degrees and broil for another couple of minutes. DO NOT flip the fillets over.
