Chili-Lime Flounder with Chili-Lime Rice (Gluten Free)
I’m so excited about this recipe today. I found the original recipe on a blog called Fashionable Foods, but I did change a few things that in my opinion made this meal even better. This recipe will be made often in our house. Today I made flounder, but you could use any kind of fish. You would just have to adjust the time you bake it.
I love the spices in this recipe. The combination of spices made this flounder so flavorsome and delicious. Not only did I put the spices on the fish, but I added them into the rice as well and WOW it was all just so good! Seriously this recipe is a must try. The butter lime sauce drizzled over the fish and rice at the end put this meal over the top.
Tonight I only made two servings for myself and my 6-year-old son. My husband wasn’t home for supper and my girls are not big on fish. My son said it was spicy, but very good. He ate all the rice and fish, so he must have liked it.
I really hope you try this fantastic fish recipe out, not only was it good, but it’s healthy and it’s gluten free for all my gluten free followers. If you do try this recipe come back and let me know if you enjoyed it as much as I did.

- Preheat oven to 450.
- Line a baking pan with tinfoil and spray with non stick cooking spray. Place fish on pan.
- Place fish in the oven and bake 12-15 minutes.

I also paired this with corn which I added a little of the seasoning as well.
