You wanna taste something great? Google or go to the Renfroe's store across from Joe Patti's and pick yourself up a bag or two of Renfroe's Pecan Meal. Take a fillet of whatever, Snapper, Flounder as I did last Sunday and drizzle some EVOO over it, a squeeze of lemon then dust the top with this pecan meal. Then, drizzle melted butter over it and bake at 425 for about 10 minutes and then broil for 3-5. WOWZA!

I have lived in Houston since 1969. Have been to Galveston a thousand times but never have I been to San Leon or that area along the Galveston Bay. Went there last Saturday and had lunch at the Topwater Grill, a restaurant that I saw featured on a local show called, The Texas Bucket List. Boy it did not disappoint. Incredible food, site, on the water. We then went to a seafood wholesale place near the restaurant and bought a huge fresh Red Snapper and a HUUUUGE fresh Flounder and had them filleted. I then the next day used my new bag of Renfroe's Pecan Meal and did as I said above. OUTFREAKINGSTANDING!

Does the size/thickness of the fillet make much difference in the bake/broil times? What is the best thickness?
(BTW - the images in the following posts didn't post?)

Yes Pete, the thickness does play into it. We know what a fillet of grouper or Red Snapper is, right. Pretty think and meaty. My Flounder was maybe a 1/2 in think at it's thickest. Of course the tail end was almost paper thin and I had to tuck it under. Ovens also play a roll. My over tends to take longer. I think I baked it at 12 -15 minutes once it hit 425 and then broiled it to toast up those pecan breading crumbles. Drizzled butter also makes a dramatic difference. If you ever run out of the Pecan Meal, we discovered the Lemon Kale Salad crumbles from Chic-fil-A. With the salad comes these lemon, panko crumb mix. WOWZA! That was good as well.
