  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and saute onion, shrimp, and mushrooms until onion is tender. Stir in crabmeat, salt, pepper, and paprika; heat through.

  • Spoon the shrimp and crab mixture onto each flounder filet. Roll the filet up and fasten with toothpicks. Place rolled filets in prepared baking dish.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together soup, chicken broth, and water until smooth. Pour over the filets. Sprinkle cheese over the top.

  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and remove foil. Sprinkle the parsley over the top of the filets. Return the dish to the oven and bake uncovered for an additional 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

If you haven't tried this yet you are missing out! I used canned crabmeat instead of fresh and my family begs for this dish! We have also made it with tilapia instead of flounder and it tastes awesome too. Thanks for a great recipe that has become a family favorite! Read More

The stuffing was great, but the mushroom soup and the cheddar did not seem to go. I also agree that the soup is too much, it smothers the fish when I felt a lighter zesty sauce would have fit better. Read More

This was outstanding! The fish filets I had were too small to roll though so I just put the fish in the bottom of the baking dish covered it with the stuffing and then sauce and cheese. I baked it the same way directed and it came out perfect. Even my kids loved it! Read More

I gave this recipe to my sister. We were having about 12 people over for lunch. This was a huge hit. We almost ran out and we made twice as much as we needed. It has only been 3 days since we had this and people have asked us for the recipe. One friend has family over and was describing it for them and wants to make it. There was alot of the soup left over but we used it to spoon over some baked chicken and it tasted great! Also we used tilipa instead of flounder use a toothpick to hold your fish together if you're having problems keeping it together. Read More

This was good. Next time I would halve the cream of mushroom soup mixture and add some cubed bread to the shrimp crab mix so its easier to roll. I would also sub a fresh parm asiago mix for the cheddar as it just didn't quite fit. Read More

This was a great recipe! The store I was at didn't have Flounder so we used Tilapia and it was great. Also used imitation crab meat but I think it would have been tasier with canned crab meat (although more expensive). Read More

i made this recipe with a few alterations. i used a cornbread stuffing mix in addition to the listed ingredients and used a bottled alfredo sauce instead of cream of mushroom soup. try this recipe with the cornbread stuffing and alfredo sauce. it's delicious. Read More

this was the best seafood recipe i have ever made. i did add 2 tbsp mayo and 5 crushed saltine crackers 1/4 tsp worchestsire sauce and 1'4 tsp dry mustard in the stuffing mix. kinda mixed the recipe with the crab stuffed flounder recipe on this web site. and let me tell you it was a big hit with the family. will make this again for sure but might have to double the recipe for they couldnt stop eating it and wanted more!

This was quick and easy!The only thing I did different was I did not wrap the fish. I just laid the shrimp and crab mixture on top. I also did not use cheese. I was trying to keep it low fat. Everyone in the family was pleased. I will make again! Read More
