Skillet Cajun Spiced Flounder with Tomatoes



Happy Friday! What a week. Nothing too thrilling, but just a bit of everything! Sleeping in a bit, cleaning and organizing the basement, shopping for a prom dress, baking, cooking…nothing too thrilling.

As I cleaned and organized the basement I was trying to put things in like order! I put all my dozens of mason jars in two huge boxes…I have some crafts in mind for them already! I am putting together all my lost vases and miscellaneous glassware for some garden projects too! Why buy them when you can make unique pieces on your own? I also boxed up tons of card making supplies to put in a consignment sale in September. I guess even though I didn’t go anywhere spring break was pretty productive!

Why is it that during Lent (if you are Catholic and follow it) Fridays are just so darn hard? It’s only one day a week that we can’t eat meat! We can eat meat every other day of the week…It’s just a mindset I guess. This recipe is very good whether yo make it during Lent or not. . I enjoyed it, but my husband enjoyed it more!

Not only was a it good but it was pretty too!


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 4 (6 oz) pieces flounder fillets (or any white fish such as tilapia)
  • 3/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Cajun spice seasoning


In a deep skillet, cook onion and garlic in olive oil on medium heat for a few minutes until soft. Add tomatoes, peppers and spices, stir and cook until tomatoes are soft, about 2-3 minutes.

Lay fish fillets in the sauce, cover and cook on medium-low until fish flakes easily, approx 12-15. To serve, place fish on plate and spoon sauce on top. Serve immediately.

A delicious mean cannot get any easier than that! I wish I’d had some bread to sop up all the delicious sauce but I didn’t and I should actually be glad. My girls didn’t want fish so they had mac n cheese . I ate my serving. My husband came home late so he didn’t eat with us. but when he ate he sure ate…everything that was left in the pan! I was so mad! The leftovers after he should have eaten would have been my lunch for the next day! Never let a hungry man at alone if you want left overs! Needless to say I forgave him!
