Thanks for joining us as we countdown to 2015 with 5 of YOUR favorite recipes this year! Today it’s time for #2 – Basic Grilled Flounder! This recipe goes way back - 4 years back! Back before I had step by step images and all that. Aside from being buried in the archives, I’m surprised this recipe made into the top 5. It’s not that this recipe tastes bad or anything. It’s just that it’s so simple! I'm thinking I should learn simplicity - it's certainly a theme in this year's most popular recipes. :)
We recently got a George Foreman grill, and I thought it would be easy to use for making some flounder quickly. I can’t say I was very impressed, but cleanup was fairly easy. Maybe it’s my limited counter space, but I don’t quite think the amount of space a George Foreman takes up justifies the amount of benefit it provides. However, I will give it a few more tries to get a better feel for what it can do. It’s possible that the George Foreman is better for making burgers, but I think using a pan would have been significantly better for making this flounder. Aside from some difficulties with the George Foreman, this very basic grilled flounder was a very quick and easy seafood option. Just pour some Worcestershire sauce in with the flounder, let it marinate, and then cook. I thought that with the addition of the lemon juice, the fish tasted too acidic, but depending on your preferences, some could be squeezed on afterward.
|1/2 teaspoon||soul food seasoning||or seasoned salt or other seasoning|
|1 teaspoon||lemon juice|
|2 teaspoons||Worcestershire sauce|
- Gather all materials.
- Marinate the flounder in Worcestershire sauce.
- Place flounder on a greased pan (or grill). Be sure to grease the pan or grille or the flounder will stick.
- Sprinkle soul food seasoning (or seasoned salt) on flounder.
- Flip and repeat on the other side.
- Serve, adding lemon juice if desired.
