DELICIOUS! This tasted exactly like the Crab stuffed Sole I get at Red Lobster! However, I will note that I made a few alterations... I used flounder fillets instead of whole flounder (I spread the filling between two large fillets). I also used SHRIMP instead of crab because it's all I had and I was craving a stuffed fish entreƩ. If you don't like crab, or you find it's just too expensive - shrimp makes an excellent substitute! In an effort to cut back on some fat/calories - I only used 2 T butter for the mixture instead of the 1/3 cup as called for. The mixture didn't seem as moist, but once it baked with the fish - it was perfect. I also used seasoned breadcrumbs and homemade cajun seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and paprika). I mixed a little cajun seasoning in the butter I used to rub the fillets with... Awesome recipe- thanks!!!



FAB-U-LOUS!! My fiance' thought I was a gourmet chef. Though, I must admit that I added my own little touch as I always do. I used fillets instead of the whole flounder and in the crab mixture, I added a touch of mayo. I buttered both sides of the fillet, rolled it up with the mixture, seam side down and spinkled the top with a little Adobo and paprika. Thanks Therese.... you make me look good!!!



Very good recipe, though I must say, I am a Marylander and didn't have "Cajun" seasoning, so I used Old Bay instead. I also omitted the 1/2 large onion chopped. It takes awhile to chop all the ingredients, but it is an easy recipe and the end result had a restaurant-quality taste.
