Curried Flounder Madras Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds flounder (sole, halibut, cod, or haddock) fillets
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 medium-size yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 green onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry or dry white wine (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Shredded Cabbage with Garlic, to serve (recipe follows)
How to cook Curried Flounder Madras:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • In a 9 or 10-inch skillet with an ovenproof handle, melt the butter over moderate heat. Add the ginger, yellow onions, green onions, garlic, and curry powder, and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat. Push the onion mixture to one side of the skillet.
  • If the flounder fillets are very thin, fold them in half. They should be about 1 inch thick when folded.
  • Place the fillets in the skillet in one layer and spread the onion mixture evenly over the fillets, and sprinkle with the salt.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes or longer, depending on the thickness of the fish. If the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, it is done.
  • Serve the Curried Flounder Madras with Shredded Cabbage with Garlic.

Shredded Cabbage with Garlic Recipe

Shredded Cabbage with Garlic Ingredients:
  • 1 small head cabbage (about 1-1/4 pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter or margarine
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to cook Shredded Cabbage with Garlic:
  • Quarter the cabbage, trim off and discard the core at the point of each quarter, then cut the quarters into 1/8-inch thick slices.
  • Melt the butter in a 12 or 14-inch skillet, over moderately high heat. Add the cabbage, and garlic, and stir to coat the cabbage with the butter. Sauté about 1 minute.
  • Cover the skillet and cook the cabbage over low heat about 15 minutes, or until it is tender but still crisp, stirring occasionally. Season with the salt and pepper.
