Jersey/Texas Flounder (Last Four Fillets)


A few months ago, My Texas Buddy Gary, you all know as “GaryS” was on a long distance drive with his Lovely Wife. They drove from East Texas to New Jersey to visit their Son Brian, who was working in New Jersey. So after their visit with their Son, they swung by & visited the Bear Den on their way back to Texas.
WE had a Great time, and I posted the Pork Roll Sammies we had while they were here, but another thing is that Gary brought me a bunch of frozen Flounder Fillets straight from a boat off the Jersey Coast. I appreciated that very much, and my Thanks Go to Gary & Brian for my favorite Ocean Fish.
So back then for the first 4 Flounder Fillets, I decided on the KISS method. All I did was sprinkle both sides with Old Bay, and fry them in Butter in a Pan.


Now to the Last 4 Flounder Fillets:
So this time I thawed out the last 4 Fillets from that bunch Gary brought me from Jersey.
Then I put my Breading Machine to work on breading these 4 Fillets.
Then I put them into my Air Fryer Wire Basket, and set the Temp @ 400° and set for 30 minutes. I also turned ON the Air Fryer Fan.
Checked at 18 minutes, and weren’t done yet. Tried again at 21 minutes & they were plenty done.
I was in a Fishy Kind off a Mood, so I put them all on one plate & some Sandwich Spread on the side for my Tartar Sauce.
My Eyes were bigger than my Belly again, so I had one left to save for the next day, and I was packed!
Boy these were Great—This AirFryer does one Heck of a Job!!


And Thanks Again to Gary!!


Thanks for dropping by,

Bear

That looks great Bear! Fluke is great but I'm lousy at catching them, I only manage 2-3 per year :( Trying to get in one last Blackfish (Tog) trip this year.

We caught a ton of Fluke and Sea Bass, I caught more Sea Bass than anyone else and quite a few Fluke, along with Sea Robins, Rays and Bluefish . My son caught a 60 + lb. Sting Ray.
Fun, Fun, Fun. My son took me, his youngest son (who is 6) and his friend. Chartered a boat for the day. We went out about 50 miles

Thank You Rat !!
My Son was doing good on Flounder, until Sandy took his Trophy Pro for a 2 mile unscheduled ride, ending in a wooded area.

So much for my Free Saltwater Fish!

That's rough! I had a couple buddies lose boats in Sandy too, even though they were on blocks in the marina yard ;p

His was up on the second shelf at a marina, and winterized, when Sandy took it.
He did OK though. He had good insurance, so he got it fixed up & sold it.
He got a Pontoon Party Boat now & is looking for a Lake to keep it at.
