Whether your purchase contains fresh or frozen flounder, it’s important to open and inspect your shipment as soon as you can after it arrives on your doorstep.
Because it is flash-frozen at sea at the peak of its freshness, frozen flounder is a perfect, protein-packed, low-fat go-to you can treat yourself and your family to year-round.
While there are a number of safe ways to thaw frozen fish, by far the best approach to preserve its flavor and consistency is to thaw it for 18-24 hours in the refrigerator. Simply remove the flounder from its packaging and put it onto a plate or shallow pan to catch any liquid. Refrigerate at least 8-10 hours (preferably overnight) before you plan to cook it.

Flounder species are often nicknamed “chameleons” because of their ability to change colors as a means to blend in with their environment.
