Grilled Orange Flounder

"A way that I cooked a whole flounder on the BBQ that turned out well. The orange juice runs through the fish during cooking giving it a sweet flavour, while the remainder of the rind when placed to the side of the dish can be eaten from time to time as a more sour offset."

Ready In:




  • Place flounder on top of piece of foil large enough to wrap it securely.
  • Cover with orange slices and sprinkle with pepper and herbs.
  • Wrap tightly in foil and cook in a pre-heated BBQ with hood down for approximately 30 minutes, turning once during cooking.
  • Open the foil and continue to cook approximately 15 minues with the BBQ hood still down.

  1. This was a wonderful dish. I couldn't find flounder anywhere, so used barramundi fillets, but it was still fabulous. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Peter for sharing this keeper.
  2. This fish dish was yummy, the flavours was not overpowering and the sliced orange kept the fish moist. The only change I made was I wrapped the fish in baking paper first as I find fish tends to stick on foil then I added the foil. Thank you Peter J


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
