I have the fish cut for stuffing.
What is a basic recipe for stuffing and broiling or baking?

Thanks.

Stacked fillets of flounder with shrimp filling
Yield: 4 servings

For the filling
10 raw shrimp medium size
1-2 T herbs de Province, or seasoning of choice
S/P to tastes, but quite generous
½ C finely diced red bell pepper
1/3C finely diced shallots
1 egg white
½ C breadcrumbs or Panko ( Japanese breadcrumbs)


1.) Place cleaned and paper-towel-dried shrimp in a food processor and pulse very briefly with steel blade to break up the shrimp into a course puree. Do not pulse it into a smooth much
2.) Turn out the shrimp into a stainless steel bowl and place it into a larger bowl filled with ice.
3.) Add the seasonings, diced pepper and shallots to the iced shrimp puree and mix all gently with a fork. (Hold 2T of the peppers in reserve)
4.) Add egg white and mix thoroughly
5.) Fold in breadcrumbs and set aside, still on ice.
For the dish:
3 Flounder fillets ( nice size, not too thin about ¾ lb each)
2T EVOO
1/3C breadcrumbs or Panko

1.) Preheat oven to 350ºF
2.) Select a casserole pan or gratin’ee large and high enough to hold the a stack of flounder fillets (three high). Oil the pan
3.) Place one flounder fillet in pan and spread a layer of the shrimp filling on top using a spatula or broad knife
4.) Add a second fillet and cover it with the rest of the shrimp filling
5.) Added the final fillet, and brush it nicely with the EVOO and top generously with breadcrumbs
6.) Garnish the top of the flounder fillet stack with the reserved peppers
7.) Bake until the fillet stack is cooked through, about 25 minutes

I've been stuffing my flounder with DJ's boudin. It's tastes great and is very easy to fix (OK, so I'm a little lazy :) ). But it is easy to fix at work and the guys are reeeel jealous! :)

I've fixed it both ways using filets only and the traditional stuffed pocket style.

Good luck
Mike

TWT, that sounds delicious. I will have to try that myself.
I need a simple recipe so my wife can cook it. Mi esposa no tiene no regalos en la cocina.

Hey BS, I have bought the boudin at Kroger and Super Walmart (BW8/Wallisville Rd.) and HEB carries it also. I've seen it packaged in links and bricks.

Note: I cooked two flounder at work Wednesday night. They went fast! :)

Good luck.
Mike
