Growing up near the beach, there are few things I enjoy eating more than fish…unless it’s fish stuffed with crab. You see, for years now I’ve ordered Crab Stuffed Flounder every time it’s on the menu. In fact, it’s even what I served at my wedding reception. So I decided it was high time to give it a try in my own kitchen and I’m so excited to be able to share this seafood lover’s dream recipe with you!
What You Will Need:
3-5 Fillets of Flounder
1/2 Pound of Jumbo Lump Crab Meat
6 Ounces of Softened Cream Cheese
3 Tablespoons of Parsley
2 Teaspoons of Breadcrumbs
1 Teaspoon of Butter
How to Make It:
Start by mixing together your crab meat, cream cheese and two tablespoons of parsley and setting the mixture aside.
Next lay out your pieces of flounder and divide your crab mixture evenly between them, placing it in the middle of your fillet.
Roll the fillet around the crab mixture and then place your fish seam down into a greased baking pan.
Be sure to push any extra filling into the rolls so that it doesn’t come out as you’re baking. Once your rolled fillets are ready, sprinkle your bread crumbs evenly over the top of them and then melt your butter. Pour the melted butter over the top of the breadcrumbs and now you’re ready to put your fish in the oven.
Bake your Crab Stuffed Flounder on 350 degrees for twenty to twenty-five minutes or until your fish flakes apart easily with a fork. Since you do have crab sitting on the bottom portion of your fish, ensure it is cooked all the way through before serving.
Once you’re sure your fish is done, sprinkle the remainder of your parsley over the top and serve it immediately. The outside with be perfectly baked fish and the inside is rich and creamy crab meat.
It truly is the perfect combination for any seafood loving foodie!
