Heat, salty and sweet go wonderfully with a thick piece of flounder. Please note this method works for FROZEN flounder. This method results in a super silky, melt-in-your-mouth flounder.

This method works with frozen flounder. Right out of the freezer, pour all of teriyaki and grenadine over the fish. Then add half of all the spices (EXCEPT FOR CLOVES) you are using, over the fish. Let frozen fish marinate by sitting in room temp for about 2 hours.
