Grilled Orange Roughy/Flounder

Somewhere in the bowels of this forum there is a thread on grilling orange roughy with a pic of this being accomplished on a bed of sliced lemons and the fillet was topped with a few sprigs of fresh dill. For some reason, I can't find the original post or I would provide the link (must be an ID I0 T operator problem). I first discovered the post a couple of years ago and thought this was a must try. Fast forward a couple of years later and I finally found the time to give it a try (being retired is really a time consuming ordeal). I have used this method a couple of times in the past few months with orange roughy and last night with flounder fillets with excellent results. In all cases I used direct heat. A couple of things that I did that the original poster may or may not have done was to drizzle dill infused butter and lemon juice over the fillets prior to placing on the grill. I would recommend this method for any delicate fish that will not withstand any movement on the grill.

    Not sure if this is it or not.  Looks similar.

    GA, that is not the one. The thread or post I was referring to had a pic of the orange roughy fillets on the bed of lemons. And it may be that it was a reply to to another post. After checking out the above link, I have to admit that I did used a little salt and pepper in addition to the infused butter.

    GA, that would be the one. And maybe if I had not had an ID IO T moment and spelled roughy correctly I would have found it.

    Did find a pic of one of my orange roughy efforts. Not a great pic but I think one gets the general idea. Had just put the lemon and fish on and was about to close the top.
