Hello everybody! For all you pescetarians out there, today I am sharing with you my delicious stuffed flounder recipe. Video found below.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: approximately 45 min

Ingredients:

8 flounder fillets, thinly sliced
1 lbs. shrimp, cleaned
1 lbs. scallops, cleaned
1/2 lbs. crab meat, cleaned
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup of parsley, chopped
10 basil leaves, chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
black pepper to taste
salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. To make the stuffing, begin by crushing and chopping the garlic and add in a frying pan with the olive oil and 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter. Fry over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes. Add the shrimp to the frying pan and stir together. Next, stir in the scallops. Lastly, add the crab meat and stir all the ingredients together. Leave over medium/high heat for 5-7 minutes. After a few minutes, add crushed black pepper and salt and mix. Add the parsley and basil after about 5 minutes and mix. Then add the breadcrumbs and mix everything in the pan together for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place four fillets of flounder on the sheet. Add a generous amount of the stuffing on top of each fillet. Cover the stuffing with another flounder fillet as if making a sandwich. Sprinkle breadcrumbs over top of each fillet. Place 1/2 tablespoon of sliced butter over each fillet. Place in the oven at 400 degrees on the middle rack and bake for 15 minutes. Serve while hot. Buon Appetito!
