Fast flat fish feast, by broiler.

Step 1: Find a flounder

Catch or purchase some nice flounder. They may be called sole, halibut, turbot, plaice, fluke, or dab; all are flatfish, members of the order Pleuronectiformes.

These fish are flat (surprise!), and adults carry both eyes on the darker top side of the head. They tend to spoil quickly, so eat them soon after you catch them or make sure to buy one in very good condition. There should be no fishy smell, the flesh should spring back when you prod it, the eyes should be clear, and the gills bright.
I've just bought some salted makerel, they are oily like you've covered them in butter - delicious & full of your omega-3's an' all that... May well post once I've cooked 'em.
Sounds good! I love mackerel sushi, but haven't figured out how to properly cook them fresh & whole. We made some the other day, but weren't particularly satisfied. (so it won't be an Instructable.) I don't know that I've tried salted mackerel, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it.
that was a sorry exuse for a flounder, and i clean then and its turns out alot better. but as im writing this the fluke season has ended, but i can post how to clean and cook a baneta tuna if you would like

Cool! I hadn't noticed. Too bad we ate it instead of auctioning it off on eBay.
Flounder. Fish. Sometimes tasty. Sometimes not. I like tasty fish.
