Curry Fried Flounder with Broccoli, Onions, and Golden Raisins

Curry Fried Flounder with Broccoli, Onions, and Golden Raisins (Serves 2)

I have fallen in love with broccoli all over again as a result of this meal. Stir-frying broccoli with sweet yellow onion and golden raisins creates a wonderful taste. And I am delighted with the result of pan frying curry-spiced fish. Here’s how it works…

Prep and Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

Ingredient list:

2 flounder filets
1 large head or 2-3 small heads of broccoli
1 medium sweet yellow onion
1 big handful of golden raisins
Yellow curry powder
Extra virgin olive oil
Garlic powder
Black pepper


Chop onion and broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Add two tablespoons of olive oil to a wok over medium heat. Add onions and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add broccoli. Add salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste. Stir-fry ingredients for several minutes. Add golden raisins. Add a splash of water to wok to help the raisins plump up. Cover and let cook over low heat 5-10 minutes while you cook fish.

Add olive oil to a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Season both sides of fish with yellow curry powder, salt, and black pepper. Go heavy with the curry powder. Lay fish in the pan and let it sear undisturbed for 2-3 minutes on the first side. Turn and sear the other side, letting it sizzle another 2-3 minutes.

Transfer vegetables and fish to plates and eat!

    I made this last night with flounder. It was fantastic! Even my 15 mo old son gobbled it up, and he’s a tough sell some nights. Amen to falling in love with broccoli after this one. Thanks Tom!

  3. I’m gonna make this tonight, however its storming and I don’t feel like leaving to get raisins so I will try currants. Great idea Tom.
