    We live in Chandler Az and you can't get flounder in the desert. Well, one day we were shopping in Frys and low and behold in the frozen section we found flounder. Bought 4 packages and when I got home found this recipe. I'm from NJ and used to fish for flounder and fluke which is a larger flounder. Anyway I'm on cloud nine. I found flounder and this amazing recipe. Thank you. It's delicious.

    This was amazing!! I made it with tilapia instead of flounder and a can of baby shrimp rather than the pound of shrimp. I will definitely make this again!!

    This has become one of our favorites, we substitue Walleye vs Flounder since we have an abundance of Walleye here in South Dakota.

    It came out really good. But not my favorite dish yet.

    first attempt. i switched it up a bit. My filets were a little small. So instead of stuffing I put the fish down first and topped it with the stuffing. Let's see how it comes out.
