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.
