Instructions

Prepare Egg to indirect to 335 to 350 degrees. No wood chunks, perfered.

Put grill pan or small cookie sheet big enough to hold fish on grill. let this heat.

In a small sauce pan Melt Butter and Olive oil over med high heat.

Cook onions, peppers until wilted, add garlic and 1/2 of the parsley season with salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes then add Trout pieces . cook one minute stiring until just opaque.

Cut flounder down the center to the back bone from the head to the tail. With a boning or filet knife Cut the meat away from the center out to the edge of the fish all the way down to the tail. This will form a pocket with two flaps of meat and skin.

Salt and pepper the insides and sqeeze of lemon. Add the stuffing mixture to the pocket and the Mayo, remaining bread crumbs and 1/8tps Cajun seasoning. Fold the skin over the stuffing and close with Toothpick. Add a slice of lemon to the top and more parsley and pepper.

When the BGE is at temp transfer the Flounder to heated grill pan and close lid.

Cook for 15 min. then shut down Egg for 5 to 7 minutes more. Check for doneness , do not over cook.

 

Notes

Since a lot of the flounder I catch are 12 to 14 inces and I also catch Speckled Trout with them. I use the trout to make the stuffing mixture and to make it feed two people. The trout tends to dry out if cooked alone and they go great with the flounder. This very easy to serve a the fish will spatula right off with the stuffing. Then lift out the bones and enjoy the lower half. Skin is greast too. I recomend whipped sweet potatos and a Chardonay.
