The Antarctic Armless Flounder (Mancopsetta Maculata) is a species of southern flounder found on subantarctic shelves, around Antarctic islands, and banks off East Antarctica.

Flounder is a type of flatfish of which there are circa 30 of flounder that can be found in tropical and temperate coastal waters of Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Flounder lives on the ocean floor. It usually inhabits areas near the coral reefs, bridge piles and docks.

This tasted delicious although, at the time I admit I didn’t cook it alone, and it shall likely be the only Antarctic example on this blog, but a box ticked, is a box ticked indeed.

You do not have to choose flounder, you could select Sole, Halibut, Plaice, Turbot, John Dory or Brill, all are flatfish and all are readily available in the UK. The world is not quite your oyster, but the choice most certainly is.

Your fishmonger will happily advise you on what to choose if you are in any way concerned or confused. This immediately goes without saying, but it is important so I shall say it. You can of course leave out the pistachios if you have a nut allergy.
