This is a dish that we like almost as much as fish candy. It's called sizzling flounder, and I originally read the recipe in Southern Living. The name might be flounder; however, we have never had flounder in our local store. So we have to use an alternative. The recipe lists tilapia, grouper, or catfish as good alternatives. We have used both tilapia and catfish. Tonight was a tilapia night.
