Broiled Stuffed Flounder Fillets

Yield 6 servings


  • 3 slices sandwich bread
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3/4 pound lump crab meat, flaked
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 flounder fillets (about 2 pounds)
  • Basting Sauce

How to Make It

  1. Place bread in a small bowl; add water to cover. Set aside.

  2. Sauté onion, celery, green pepper, and garlic in butter in a large skillet; add crab meat, parsley, pimiento, hot sauce, salt, and pepper, stirring well. Drain bread; squeeze any excess water from bread slices. Add bread to crab meat mixture, stirring until well blended. Cover and simmer over low heat 10 minutes, stirring once.

  3. Place 3 fillets on a rack in a large broiler pan; spoon one-third of stuffing mixture evenly over each fillet. Top with remaining fillets, and secure with wooden picks. Broil 6 inches from heating element 7 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Baste frequently with basting sauce while broiling. Transfer stuffed flounder to a serving platter, and serve immediately.
