Flounder is an Atlantic flatfish (think halibut but much smaller). The name flounder is applied to a wide variety of flatfish species. Like all flatfish, flounder begins life as a "typically" shaped fish, and one eye migrates as it becomes a bottom-dwelling flatfish. When it matures, both its eyes are on the upper side of its body (either the right or left side depending on the species). Like halibut, flounder has a sweet, mild flavor, but flounder is flakier and more delicate than halibut.
The home cook has many options: flounder can be roasted, broiled, pan seared, fried, steamed, and poached. Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative." Low mercury level. Kosher.
Long line caught, Hawaii

We are excited to get this week's swordfish direct from Hawaii. Like all swordfish, it shows off its most distinctive characteristic—its meaty, almost steak-like texture—when it is grilled. But however you cook it, it's awesome! In addition, it's an excellent gateway fish for those who are skeptical of seafood in general.
Swordfish tends to have a high oil content, a rich flavor, and a texture that is as close to that of premium cuts of beef. Swordfish can be baked, broiled, grilled, sautéed, and smoked. It is MSC certified and Seafood Watch rates it a "Good Alternative.” Higher mercury level.
