  • 1 ½ pounds flounder fillets

  • 1 cup crabmeat - drained, flaked and cartilage removed

  • 3 crushed saltine crackers

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green bell pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon ground dry mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ground white pepper to taste

  • 1 egg white

  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup butter, melted


  • 1 egg yolk

  • 5 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

  • ½ teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Rinse flounder fillets and pat dry with paper towels. Lightly grease a shallow baking dish.

  2. Combine crabmeat, crushed saltines, bell pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and white pepper together in a medium bowl. Combine egg white and 1 tablespoon mayonnaise in a small bowl; stir into crabmeat mixture.

  3. Brush fillets with melted butter; place in the prepared baking dish. Spoon crabmeat mixture over fillets and drizzle with any remaining butter.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, make topping: lightly beat egg yolk in a small bowl. Stir in 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Remove fish from the oven and spread this mixture over stuffing; sprinkle with parsley and paprika.

  6. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) and bake until golden and bubbly, about 5 or 6 minutes.
