Skillet Cajun Spiced Flounder with Tomatoes



Cajun spices, tomatoes, onions and peppers give any white fish extra pizazz and a little kick. Super easy and quick!

I try to incorporate fish in my diet at least twice a week, to keep it exciting I like to prepare it in different ways. This recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight meal, you can use any white fish such as sole or tilapia. Serve this with brown rice or quinoa to soak up the delicious sauce.


Note: This recipe was re-posted from the archives for Lent, for your convenience I have labeled all my Lent-friendly Recipes.

  1. Hi Gina! I'm glad I found your site. I'm a weight watcher (lately off the wagon.) I also like to make this dish with sauteed fennel and onions. I'll try your recipe this week. It's great because it tastes good and it's so dang easy!

  3. Hi Gina! I love flounder. This sounds easy and light. I'll be making it tonight!

    thanks for the reminder that I should eat more fish!

  4. Our local grocer was out of flounder. So I tried tilapia w/ this and it was delicious! Will definitely make it again!

  6. Hi Gina! This looks so good!
    I'm wondering if it would still be tasty if I used carrots instead of bell pepper?
    Thanks!

    1. Sure, I've made it without peppers and it's just as tasty.

  10. Funny - I had just tagged this from the recipe archives to make for fish Friday. I have mahi mahi at home and was going to use that - it's a little thicker than flounder so I hope it will work OK. Looks simple and yummy.

    1. Sure, it will work, it's basically steamed so closing the lid will make sure it's cooked through.

  11. Gina, would this work with canned chopped tomatoes?

    1. I googled and found this from all recipes:

      2 teaspoons salt
      2 teaspoons garlic powder
      2 1/2 teaspoons paprika
      1 teaspoon ground black pepper
      1 teaspoon onion powder
      1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      1 1/4 teaspoons dried oregano
      1 1/4 teaspoons dried thyme
      1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

  13. Could we make this with chicken? If so, would that affect the points at all? I'm guessing no, since one serving of chicken breast is 4 points.. but could it be cooked the same way as the fish?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sure, you would be poaching it, a full breast takes about 14-15 minutes. Careful not to over-cook it.

      Delete
    2. Hmmm...maybe I'd just make the sauce and grill the chicken separately and then just pour it over the top. I'll let you know how it comes out!

  14. This looks so simple and tasty!!

  15. I made this tonight and it was tasty plus healthy. I also made the "fat Tuesday" chicken recipe and used the Cajun spice recipe that a fellow follower had posted within the comments of that recipe. Simply delicious!

  16. This is basically a traditional fish court bullion recipe based in traditional French cuisine. Very popular in Creole cuisine using catfish and served with rice.

    ReplyDelete
  17. So yummy! I'm always looking for a good fish recipe! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  18. This sounds good...but my kids don't like fish. Can it be done with chicken breast? How long would you say they would need to cook if they were boneless?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sure, but careful not to overcook the chicken so it doesn't get rubbery. 14-15 min for a whole breast.

  19. I'm on a special diet, and your meals are great because with most any of them, I can figure out a way to substitute ingredients to get a similar outcome. I'm really getting bored with my fish dishes, so I'm looking forward to trying this one. Thanks so much, and keep 'em coming!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ok I've never cooked fish before..could someone help me? I really don't know what to look for when buying fish?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I stay away from fish on sale, I buy it frozen or fresh from the fish market. It shouldn't smell fishy.

      Delete
  21. Oh my! That looks delish. My husband wants to eat more fish, but desn't like "fishy" fish. I think that this recipe would be perfect. Like the other fan, I'll leave out the bell pepper, because he doesn't care for it. Thanks for a great recipe! Have a wonderful weekend.

  22. How did I miss this recipe from before? (It says it's a repost). I have all the ingredients (well, I have tilapia)! WOO HOO! (we're doing the 17 day diet currently and have been looking on your site for recipes that will work because your recipes are the best!)

  27. Just finished having this for dinner. I served it a red quinoa&brown rice combo that I found in the freezer case(cooks in a few minutes) it was great! Gina you are the best. I love the photos because sometimes when I cook things I wonder is it supposed to look like that? So it's great to have the pictures as a guide that I'm not doing anything wrong. Thanks again for a wonderful website.

  28. Looking forward to trying this! I am glad to find a flavorful recipe for talapia as it always tastes kinda bland to me. Can't wait to make. Thanks for reposting some of your older recipes. Oh btw, my family LOVES the Swedish meatballs. My favorite thing about it? It says it makes 22 and it makes 22!! A real pet peeve for me- making a recipe that says it's 6 servings for 6 PP and then it actually only makes 4! So annoying! Share your website with many of my members at WW. Thanks!

  29. I made this tonight with tilapia filets and served it over bulgar. It was good, but my cajun spice mix wasn't as flavorful as I hoped it would be. Next time I will try the homemade version that someone posted above. I love your website, I've tried 4 of your recipes this week! We're watching calories in our house, so it's great to get some new ideas for low-cal dinners. I made your peanut chicken and noodles recipe for my husband who has yet to like any peanut chicken dish I've ever tried. Well, yours was a winner! He loved it!

  30. Made this tonight and it was a HIT! Thanks so much Gina!

  31. Hi Gina,
    I made this yesterday for dinner and it was very good (and easy). Samson the cat gives it his paws up too but I think the flounder was a tad spicy for him as he kept licking his "lips".
    :)
    Please keep up the good works, I'm fairly new to your web site/blog and I'm loving it!

  32. Tried this last night for dinner with some catfish that had been taking up space in the freezer for way too long....I have never tried catfish before and I was surprised by its almost smokey taste (rather like English Smokey Bacon Crisps.

    Anyway it went down very well, and the teeny bit that was left over will be my lunch today.

    Thanks for that - great recipe

    Lou :-)

  33. Hi Gina - great recipes! I'm trying to click on the link for the spinach lasagna roll ups and the link isn't correct I don't think from the casserole recipe page. It keeps just bringing me to blogger.com to sign up for a blog - can you let me know how I can get the recipe for it? thanks!

  35. Made this tonight for my family, however, husband got called out of town to work, oldest son went to his respective home earlier and youngest son got off work and went to his respective home as well! I absolutely loved it. NEVER thought I would love fish so much and NOT fried was even better. I will be making this A LOT!!

  36. We made this last night. It was one of the best fish dishes we've ever had!! My boyfriend LOVES fish, and he was working hard on yardwork all day so I wanted to make him a treat. I used a red pepper instead of a green, a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and two fresh tomatoes, and cod instead of flounder. Served it with herb rice and your roasted parmasean green beans and lemon juice. AMAZING!

  37. I made this today and it was amazing!

  38. I have been coming to this site now for about 6 months. I have never been disappointed with any recipe you have posted. I have told family and friends to try your recipes. This dish is no exception. Very delicious.We made a special trip to Whole Foods for tomatoes, peppers, and fresh tilapia.

  39. I made this tonight with chicken breasts and no peppers and wow this is good! I am surprised it's only 355 calories (including my brown rice)...awesome dinner idea!

    ReplyDelete
  40. This was amazing! I used tilapia, two cans of fire roasted tomatoes, and added some crushed red pepper for a little more heat. Paired it with some brown rice and it was gone pretty quick. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Also a huge fan great, healthy and easy recipes! I loved this recipe, was my first time cooking fish and it turned out great! I used frozen pollock and canned tomatoes and it tasted amazing. It did make the sauce a bit runny, so compensated by cooking without the lid until it reduced a bit. i added half a teaspoon on dried parsley and 1/4 of a teaspoon red pepper flakes (we like spicy) It was perfect with quinoa.

    Love everything I have made so far, it's nice to have healthy recipes that are simple and don't have so many complicated ingredients!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Does the calorie count include the quinoa?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I cooked this tonight and it was really good! I didn't have enough fresh tomatoes so I used a large can of whole tomatoes and simply chopped them. I also added one cup of chicken broth so it would be extra juicy and because I cooked six pieces of fish instead of four. I served with quinoa and couscous. Both were yummy! I have had a bag of Tilapia in my freezer and was so happy to try this recipe! Thanks

  44. I made this for dinner tonight, and oh my goodness--it was amazing!! I will definitely make this again! And I especially love the fact that fresh tomatoes were used instead of canned ones, which are high in sodium. Thanks again, Gina!

  45. Gina, this is cajun comfort food at its finest. It's called Sauce Piquante, and down in the bayou, we make it with any kind of seafood or chicken, some even make it with alligator meat. You just can't beat southern cajun food... great job. - Juli

  46. Gina,
    I made this tonight with sole, shrimp and added a bit of shrimp boil seasoning. It was so good. Thank you!

  47. I made this recipe last night. The taste was great; however, the tomatoes did not produce enough juice. In the future I would add some chicken or vegetable broth to the mix.

  49. I just made this and used no salt canned tomatoes and added a bit of water, about 1/3 cup. This was very tasty and so easy to make. Thanks!

  50. I made this for dinner tonight, it was seriously delicious. I served it in a bowl over brown rice & sautéed spinach and stirred it all up so it was like a stew. The only thing that could have improved this dish is the addition of andouille sausage, but then it wouldn't be quite as skinny, sadly!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I just recently found your site and my husbandnlovesmthe recipes we have tried from your site. One of the best things that has come from finding your site is that he's more willing to cook things, since a lot of your recipes appeal to him and don't make cooking sound so scary! He made this dish over the weekend and it was fabulous!

  52. Made this with fresh codfish and served with brown rice - whole family loved it. Had to hold the dinner so premade the vegies/spices. Reheated and added fish so super quick.
    With frozen fish and canned tomatoes this will be a great stand-by pantry meal. Thanks for making my life easier.

  53. The recipe for the Flounder is awesome I used canned tomatoes 1 small can of diced and 1 can of the basil flavored ones and it was fantastic my husband also loved it

  54. Also count me as a fan, I now have made several of your meals, including this one. VERY tasty. I used Dover Sole for the fish. On weight watchers and looking for tasty food with decent portions. Thank you so much!

  55. Gina-- This dish is AWESOME! So much flavor but not overpowering. I added just a dash of white cooking wine for more sauce and served over angel hair pasta. To-Die-For. I love your site-- have cooked several dishes and never been disappointed. Had the stuffed shells last night. Now I'm back to decide what's on the menu tonight. Thanks again!

  59. This dish was fantabulous! I made quinoa to soak up all the juice from the sauce. Mmmm...so good!

  60. Gina- I made this dish even easier on the grill last night!! To a heavy duty aluminum foil "tray"
    I added sprinkle of olive oil then added flounder, another light sprinkle of olive oil then minced garlic,salt, cajun seasoning, chopped vidalia onions, fresh squeezed lemon juice and topped with sliced tomatoes and leftover lemon slices. Cover this with heavy duty aluminum foil and poke some holes in top and place on top of grill for about 12 minutes- SUPERB!!!!!

  61. I made this last night and it was a hit! No left overs while i was feeding 2 grown men who had just got home from training brazilian jiu jitsu, they scarfed it down and asked for more.

    I did what others suggested which was add a can of fire roasted tomatoes in addition to the fresh ones. I also omitted the green pepper, i was having grilled peppers and zucchini as my side dish so i didn't want to put them in here too. All in all, great meal, def will make again!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I made this tonight... it was wonderful. I have never made fish like this before, so I was a little hesitant, but after reading the comments, I really wanted to give it a try. I used Alaskan cod because that is what was on sale. I also used canned tomatoes and skipped the green peppers because we are not fans. My husband and I both loved it and will definitely make it again. Thanks for the GREAT recipes!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. What would be a good side dish/complement to this? Rice? Some sort of pasta?

    ReplyDelete
  64. I made this last night, and it was delicious! I made the sauce a little "saucier" by adding a little bit of chicken broth (helpful for deglazing the skillet) and a tablespoon of tomato paste to thicken it up. Served it with a tasty wild rice blend. Great recipe and so easy to make!

  66. Made this with fresh salt water trout...it was wonderful! I added just a little bit of broth to make more of a sauce for serving over rice.
    Will make again.

  67. I made this with tilapia and served with jasmine rice. It was amazing! Will be making this again and again! Thanks for the recipe!

  68. This is one of the best recipes of all time for me. I woke up thinking about eating the left overs for breakfast. Even my very picky 12 year old daughter enjoyed this dish with a side of dirty rice. I also think it would a wonderful Mediterranean dish if you substituted the cajun spice with harissa, add garbanzo beans and served over couscous

    ReplyDelete
  69. We had this tonight with tilapia and loved it. I used only two fillets since there are only two of us but didn't reduce the cajun seasoning, so it was very, very spicy. I might use a bit less next time. Also, I used canned petite cut tomatoes and that worked just fine. I've added this to my regular recipe notebook. Thanks, Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  70. This dish is delicious. Followed exactly as intstructed with fresh tomatoes but just like Beth i've used less fish but same amounts on everything else- more sauce for the brown rice we had it with. Great, great!! Thank you Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I favorited this recipe a few weeks ago. I finally made it last night, using flounder fillets. It came out amazing. Lots of flavor! My boyfriend was raving on and on about it. Will def add it to the regular rotation. Every recipe of yours that I've made so far has come out exactly as you post. So thank you, Gina!

  72. Made this tonight and it was great! Served with brown rice and a small side salad. Perfect portions : )

  73. Made this for dinner tonight and it was DELICIOUS!!! My husband and I are big fans of white fish, but we usually eat it fried (I know...bad) or pan seared. We both thought it was perfect! I served it over a bed of brown rice with a side of steamed squash. YUMMY!!! That's 2 skinnytaste recipes in one day...#imafan

    Gina, you are AWESOME!!! Thanks for all of the wonderful recipes :-)

  77. Made this today using tilapia, loved it! Whenever I eat fish it tends to be fried, thanks to my southern mom. But since I've been eating much healthier & losing weight, your recipes help me think outside the soul food box, lol! This was a nice & tasty way to enjoy fish, plus quick to make.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I made this this evening, and it was excellent. I used a few swai fillets, as it was what I had on hand, and tossed in a handful of shrimp to compensate for the fillets I was missing. It ended up coming out like a gumbo! Yum! Also, for the people looking for cajun seasoning, a good ready made option is one of the McCormick Gourmet packets. I believe it's called creole jambalaya, or something similar.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I just made this with tilapia last night and served it over spaghetti squash. It's a winner and definitely in my permanent rotation (along with many of your recipes!)

    ReplyDelete
  80. This is honestly the best tasting mild fish recipe I have ever made!! I can even say its better than 99% of the fish I have had at restaurants!! I used tilapia and tomatoes that were perfectly ripe and juicy. Added some black pepper and old bay seasoning on top of the fish after I set it in the skillet. A five star meal in 15 minutes :)

  81. I made it tonite and it was easy and quick not to mention very tasty. I used Tilapia, served over rice. I know I will be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing.

  84. This is good enough for company. I made with canned tomatoes, red bell pepper, and fresh basil and Italian spices (because I didn't have cajun spices. It was seriously delicious!

  85. I tried making half of this recipe and it turns out dry... not saucy at all. Should I be adding water at some point?

    ReplyDelete
  86. I tried this recipe with tilapia and it was absolutely great! I think the cajun seasoning is what made the difference and it was not bland at all. This is a "must do" again on my list....

    ReplyDelete
  87. This was outstanding! I was seriously skeptical that I would like "poached" flounder since I'm usually pretty picky and want my fish pan-seared. I was tempted to pan sear first and then add to this recipe, but decided to follow as stated. WONDERFUL! My husband was equally a "poach snob" and was shocked at how nicely this was cooked and how flavorful it was. I used some fresh tomatoes and 1 can of sweet onion diced tomatoes. I doubled the garlic and the cajun seasoning (we like food with a kick!). My 6 and 8 year old, as well as hubby and I, all LOVED this. Served over jasmine rice with a side of garlic sautéed spinach. Thank you for another winner Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  88. We had this for dinner last night and all I can say is......YUM YUM YUM!!! I used two cans of the Fire Roasted Tomatoes in place of the fresh. Dover Sole as that is what I had on hand. Otherwise the rest of the recipe stayed the same. Super easy and great tasting. This recipe is a keeper!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I made this last night for a quick meal and it was SO good. I love that it's in 1 pot and the tomato & cajun flavors were so yummy together...

    I subbed red & yellow peppers for celery (hubbie hates celery), and used a can of tuttorosso crushed tomatoes instead of fresh. I used cod, which pretty much flaked apart and became a stew. I took the fish out and reduced the tomato sauce mixture down to thicken it up a little bit. I also added some cumin & served over rice pilaf. I liked these changes and I would do it exactly the same next time! Yum!

  96. I made this today with a few changes and it was delicious! I sautéed the onions and bell peppers in butter and added some white wine. I also added some tomato sauce and a little bit of stock so that it had more sauce.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I found this recipe a while back when looking for something to do with the flounder that has been in my freezer for eons! I haven't been able to get around to it until today. It looks delicious and I can't wait to make it. I am going to super easy route. I just purchased some pico de gallo which includes onion, jalepeno pepper, cilantro, and tomato. Everything is already chopped and ready to go! I just have to mince the garlic and throw it in. Can't wait~

  98. We loved this! We used mahi mahi and canned fire roasted tomatoes because we had those on hand. So good! Thanks, Gina!

  99. would it be possible to make this with salmon instead?

    ReplyDelete
  100. Absolutely love your recipes! Made this one the other night and it was a huge hit - my boyfriend even asked if we had enough for leftovers :) It was pretty intense (Cajun-spice wise), so I think next time I might not use as much. My fish also cooked a lot quicker than the recipe, but it was delicious. Threw it over some egg noodles for lunch the next day - yum.

    ReplyDelete
  101. So yummy!! I used Red Snapper, and it was the first time we've ever had Snapper. Turned out great, served it over rice.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Gina,
    I made this about a year ago and it was a hit! Super easy and oh so good. The best part is I asked my husband today what he wanted for dinner and he said fish. Ok, great I thought. Then he said, "Oooohhh can you make that spicy one with the tomatoes you haven't made in a while!!" Way to go Gina!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Huge hit with my family of all boys! We used Tilapia and canned chopped tomatoes, made no difference - still excellent! My husband always says "I could eat a whole bowl of just the sauce." Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Another keeper! Could not believe how easy and how flavorful this was with just a few ingredients. I can see making this with any type of fish or even shrimp. I added a little more of the cajun seasoning to the top of the fish before it went in the pot. Served it with brown rice/quinoa which was perfect to soak up all the broth!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I made this tonight and it was SO good and easy!!! I used Tilapia and cherry tomatoes because that's all I had on hand. I made roasted veggies as a side.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Oh my yum! Very good, and I don't even like fish! I made a little bit of brown rice and mixed them together on my plate. I loved it. Thanks again for another great recipe. You are making me love cooking! :)

  107. Made this tonight, delicious!

  108. I just tried this recipe and it didn't taste good at all. I followed the recipe to the T and the flounder had absolutely no flavor. What did I miss? The reviews are all so positive. :/

    ReplyDelete
  109. Made this with the following adjustments:
    Used Tilapia
    Added some cremini mushrooms which were about to expire
    used canned no salt diced tomatoes

    This turned out very well, but found ourselves missing the salt. Still, having leftovers for lunch, and not a bit sorry.

  110. Another hubby approved SkinnyTaste recipe! We like a lot of spice, so I added extra cajun spices, and it was delicious!

  111. I made this for dinner this evening & have to tell you that over quinoa it is absolutely amazing! My neighbor smelled it when she stopped by, tasted it & begged me for the recipe. I have shared it on Facebook & on Pinterest and my friends are thanking me! I wish I could send you the photo of how it was presented to my husband. He loves is & asked for 3rds. Thank you for all you do!

  115. I came across this recipe a few days ago and decided to make it. I used talapia because I had it and add Ro-tel as well. This was AMAZING....seriously amazing! Also, it took me only about 20 minutes to make. It tasted like something from a restaurant!

  116. This was so great, thank you! I always have tilapia in the freezer but I never know what to do with it (I'm not a big fish lover but I know that I should eat more of it). Even though the ingredients list was short, this was super-yummy and will become a regular weeknight meal for us. Yay!!

  120. Hi Gina,
    I love the idea of this recipe, but my husband and daughter don't like anything remotely spicy (and I LOVE cajun seasoning!!). Could you recommend another spice that might complement this dish? I know it totally changes it, but I just can't think of something off hand to substitute. Thanks!

  121. I am not a big fish eater. That being said,I LOVED this dish!!!!!!!! It was delicious, and so easy. I did use tilapia because I couldn't find flounder, and I also added an extra dash of the Cajun spice because we love spicy. Thanks so much Gina!

  122. Making this tonight for the kids, husband and I. The sauce tastes great so far....just added Tilapia. I didn't have many tomatoes so I added a can of rotel...and it spiced it up a bit too. I sprinkled a little more Cajun seasoning and paprika on top. Serving with roasted potatoes and cauliflour. Cant wait to try!

  123. I can't wait to to make this. I am adding some celery (to make the Creole Trinity) and some okra. Okay, maybe I am making a fish gumbo without the roux. I know it's going to taste great because everything you make tastes good.
