Fremont Fish Market Wild Caught Breaded Flounder cost $5.49 at the time of publication for a 16-oz. frozen bag. This is an ALDI Find (Special Buy), which means it’s only in stores for a short time.
The primary ingredient is flounder (Limanda aspera), and ingredients in the breading include bleached wheat flour, wheat flour, yellow corn powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and some other items. People with allergies should be aware these contain fish (flounder), wheat, egg, and soy. The package also notes that while every effort has been made to remove all bones, some bones may still be present. (Our family did not find any bones in our fillets.)
According to the bag, the fish was wild caught in the U.S. in the Northeast Pacific Ocean using a trawl catch method. It is certified sustainable through the Marine Stewardship Council.
The package states it contains four 4-oz. servings. Our bag had seven medium-sized fillets, making one serving a little more than one fillet. I served just one fillet per person to my family, and when served with other sides such as a salad, mac and cheese, or fruit, it was plenty of food.

There are instructions for baking in a conventional oven or in a convection oven, along with instructions for deep frying the flounder.
To bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork. Let it cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
To bake in a convection oven, follow the instructions for a conventional oven but reduce the cooking time by approximately 2 minutes.
To deep fry, heat oil to 360 degrees. Fry for approximately 4-5 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
I chose to air fry our fillets. I air fried them at 400 degrees for about 14 minutes, and they came out crispy and flaky and just how you would expect breaded fish fillets to be. When served with some tartar sauce and maybe some fries, they make a good lunch or dinner.
