Lemon Dill Flounder

Servings 6 servings


  • 6 flounder fillets or use another firm-fleshed white fish, 6-oz.
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 tablespoon dried dill
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
  • olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers rinsed, optional


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate fish for 15 minutes (see recipe).
  • Preheat grill to MEDIUM. Place fillets in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, combine next 6 ingredients (salt through lemon zest). Rub mixture into fish.
  • Cover and marinate for 15 minutes. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill fillets over indirect heat for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
