Flounder - first try with pics

Made a basic Cajun rub (below) found from cooks illustrated and made a Tartar Sauce (below) I found from a trout post that @griffin posted in the spring - thanks dude!  Earlier in the night I bloomed the spice rub in warm butter in a skillet and let it cool in the fridge.  Next I scored (cut thin slits) the flounder with the skin on, and rubbed the spice/butter mixture into slits in fish and all over both sides.    I went raised direct (rather than cast iron and oil) at 475F for about 2 mins per side. I suck at grilling fish - never know when it is done.  The middle ended up a little undercooked so we put that back in the oven for a few minutes while we ate the ends.  Also, I left a few small pin bones in the fish - ooopps - still learning, but overall turned out very nice.
