Ingredients
  • 1 lb fresh flounder fillets
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 Naval orange, zest (1 tbsp) and juice (1/3 cup)
  • 2 tbsp Mazola Corn Oil
  • 1/8 tsp Cayenne pepper use less if desired
Instructions
  1. First, preheat the oven to 425°F with the rack in the middle position.

  2. Then, wash the orange and remove the zest from the entire orange using zester. You'll yield about one tablespoon and your fingers will have the aroma of citrus orange!
  3. Next, quarter the orange and squeeze out the juice with a juicer into a measuring cup. You should get about 1/3 cup of juice.

  4. Then, add the corn oil, orange zest and Cayenne pepper to the orange juice. Stir it until it's well combined.

  5. Next, using a shallow bowl such as a pie plate, add the flounder fillets and 2/3 of the orange sauce so that the orange sauce is covering the flounder fillets and the orange zest is evenly coated on the fish.
  6. Next, wash and cut your broccoli florets or use bagged broccoli florets from the produce section of the grocery store. You'll need about 4 cups of broccoli florets. Pour the remaining orange sauce on the broccoli florets and coat them as evenly as possible with the orange sauce.
  7. Then, using a medium to large sheet pan, lie the flounder fillets on one side barely overlapping and the broccoli florets on the remaining area of the sheet pan.
  8. Place the sheet pan on the middle rack and set the timer for 20 min. Drizzle the sheet pan juice over the top of the flounder before serving!
