Flounder with Carrot Noodles

Flounder with Carrot Noodles



  • 4 flounder fillets
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil or your favorite oil
  • 1 lb. carrot noodles*
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 cup Half & Half or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. paprika plus more for fish
  • 1/4 tbsp. red pepper flakes optional
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parsley to garnish


  • Heat up the olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. Add the flounder fillets and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper, and paprika. Fry for about 2-3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  • Gently flip the fish and sprinkle with some more salt, pepper, and paprika. Cook for another 2 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through. Remove the fish from the skillet and set aside.
  • To the same skillet, add the butter and spiralized carrots. Season them with salt, pepper, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Use kitchen tongs to stir the noodles, and cook for about 5-7 minutes, until they reach the desired softness.**
  • Add garlic and cream, and cook for another minute. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Place the flounder fillets on top of the carrot noodles and sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley. Serve.
