Seared Flounder with Blood Orange Drizzle

Blood Oranges are a favorite seasonal fruit of ours. We first discovered them when R was a toddler. I had so much fun surprising him with the deep color hidden inside each orange:

Besides being beautiful, blood oranges are deliciously tart, with a more subtle sweetness than a typical navel orange. The juice is flavorful too, making this recipe extra special.

Bonus: you can make this entire recipe from start to finish in less than 15 minutes. Really. I'll show you...

Seared Flounder* with Blood Orange Drizzle

1/2 cup flour (or use corn starch to keep it gluten-free)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound of flounder (*or any similar white fish such as orange roughy, cod, tilapia)
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup blood orange juice (about 3 blood oranges)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Combine the flour (or corn starch), salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Gently dredge the fish on both sides to coat.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once heated, add the fish and cook 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the filet.

Flip, and cook another 3-5 minutes on the other side or until the fish is fully cooked (check the center with a fork if you are should flake a bit when touched with a fork).

While the fish is cooking, combine the remaining ingredients (blood orange juice, honey, soy sauce, ginger, cayenne and sesame oil). Stir well to combine.

Remove the fish from the skillet once cooked. Add the orange sauce.

Reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 2-3 minutes or until it thickens slightly.

Serve the fish with a drizzle of the blood orange sauce and a blood orange slice, if desired (sides are steamed asparagus and wild rice).

Serves 4.

Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
