Mushy flounder

I have had this problem before in trying to saute flounder or sole filets. I've got a hot pan. The fish is dry and seasoned. I cook it quickly - a couple of minutes a side. And it comes out disgusting. The consistency of mush. I love this fish and want to be able to cook it successfully. Help is appreciated!

Perhaps there's too much oil in the pan. Have you tried a non-stick pan? Alternatively, try baking the fish in the oven

Did you cook it long enough?
