There are hundreds of flatfish species found around the world. The most commercially important family of flatfish is Plueronectidae, which is concentrated in northern waters. The Yellowtail Flounder is a member of this family.
Yellowtail Flounder ranges in color from white to pinkish to tan; cooked flounder is pure white. The meat is lean, boneless, and flaky with a mild flavor. The sweet taste and firm texture of Yellowtail Flounder is often the standard to which other flounders are compared.
Yellowtail Flounder is a good, low-fat source of B Vitamins and an excellent source of Niacin.
