Simple whole stuffed flounder recipe.

Post by arunram » Thu Sep 29, 2016 11:41 am

It is flounder season and have been catching some quality fish lately. Wanted to try something different and decided to stuff a whole flounder yesterday and it came out awesome! Here is what I did.

Ingredients:
1 Flounder (Scaled, gills and gut removed, and slots slit on both sides on top of fish)
1 lb Publix crabcake mix
1/2 stick butter
Preferred seasoning (I used spicy montreal steak and lemon pepper seasoning)

Procedure:
Clean the flounder. Scaled, gills and gut removed, and slots slit on both sides on top of fish. Melt butter in the microwave and apply all over the inside and outside of the flounder. Apply seasoning in the inside of the fish by lifting the sloted sides. Then stuff the crabcake mix inside the flounder and push them in. Throw in some more butter. Sprinkle more seasoning all over the fish.

Pre heat the overn to 375 degrees. Place the dressed fish in a baking sheet (Apply butter or non stick spray on the sheet). Bake for 25 minutes. Then turn the oven to Broil (500 deg F) and cook for about 5 minutes so the top gets crispy.

Take a fork, remove the meat from the skin and bones, mix with the stuffing and enjoy!! Don't forget to dig in the flounder cheeks and scoop out that meat too!!

how about the bottom side, just eat that after the top, or have you ever stuffed both sides. I guess you'd need a big enough one to do that.

Once half way through eating, push the stuffing to a corner and just pull the backbone off. Comes of easy. Then move the stuffing back in and dig! Wanted to keep this one as simple as possible.

Paddled the kayak over to my favorite gigging spot. Stuck 4 within an hour and passed over at least 4 little little chips too. Then to cook them I basically followed this recipe and stuffed them with crab cakes. Squeezed on some lemon juice for extra flavor and holy crap, they were so so good. Thanks again Arun.

Good stuff! Using pre-made crab cake mix does make it easy. I finished mine with paprika, parsley, and lemon when they came out of the oven.

Arunram, where in Publix do you get the crab cake mix? I went up to the seafood counter to ask, and he took me around to the frozen food for some frozen name brand crab cakes and I knew that wasn't what you used. ....maybe they were just out that day. Thanks, Wanda
