Texas Style Grilled Flounder (great for all phases)
- 1 lb. Flounder filet
- Spice Rub
- 1/4 teaspoon dried minced onions
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/8 teaspoon lemon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon cumin
- 1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika
- Mix all the spice rub ingredients together and remove the flounder from the refrigerator 30 minutes before you plan to put them on the grill.
- Cover all surfaces of the steaks with a light to medium covering of the spice rub and gently rub into the flounder. Let this rest in a container outside of the refrigerator to allow it to reach room temperature before putting it on the grill.
- Get your grill going and achieve a medium hot grill. Place the flounder filets in a grill basket or on a grill screen with smaller holes to keep the filet from falling apart and crumbling through the grill as it gets closer to done. Cook for approximately 5 to 6 minutes per side. You only need to flip it once on the grill.
- If you are unsure of whether it is fully cooked or not, you can test it with a digital meat thermometer at the center of the thickest part of the filet. The temperature should read approximately 135° F.
