Stuffed Flounder

I’ve never had Flounder before and wasn’t quite sure how to cook it; so what’s a gal to do? Get on Pinterest and look up so pinspiration! I found this recipe which sounded delish. 

Since I tend to modify recipes based on ingredients that I have/don’t have/or just want to try I must admit, even with my modifications, this recipe and it turned out great.

Okay, enough jibber jabber!!! Let’s pull on our aprons and get cooking! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 large baking potato, peeled and thinly sliced (8 oz)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled or garlic powder
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 10 ounces spinach, cooked and chopped
  • sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, diced
  • flounder fillets
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon juice
  • olive oil
  • paprika

Step 1:  Pre-heat oven to 400°F.

Step 2: In small saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add potato, garlic and salt. Cook until potato is tender, about 10 minutes.

With slotted spoon, transfer potato and garlic to medium bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of cooking liquid and mash with a fork or potato masher.

Step 5: Spray non stick spray on your pan. I use aluminum foil for easy clean up.

Step 7: Spoon out the stuffing on each of the fillets equally and then roll them up.

Step 8: Place each roll on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with lemon juice, olive oil, paprika or black pepper. Pause to admire.

Don’t they look pretty…..pretty tasty! 😉

These need to bake for approx. 20 minutes (or until they are fully cooked depending on the thickness of the fillets). They tasted delightful and were a huge hit with the family. I think the potato made it taste ‘heartier’.

All in all this was a huge success and definitely a meal we will have again. Have you tried this before? Do you have a special recipe for cooking fish?
