Crab Stuffed Baked Flounder

Recipe from Harris Teeter's Fresh Catch Newsletter Female blue crabs mate only once in their lives. The blue crab is so named because of its sapphire-tinted claws. Its shell, or carapace, is actually a mottled brownish color, and mature females have red highlights on the tips of their pincers. Large males can reach 9 inches in shell width.
