OMG! This was so delish, my husband raved about this. I didn't have any Old Bay seasoning but I did have Creole seasoning so I used that instead, everything else was the same. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe.

I have made this dish and it is absolutely delicious. I also found some frozen cheddar Bay biscuits and made them as well. I can't wait to make this again

Love this recipe! Can you make extra, freeze, then defrost and serve at a later date? If so, Id like to do that...

I would roll the flounder & filling and freeze prior to the butter and baking.

I tried this recipe a few weeks ago and we loved it! It was great leftover too! Next time I make it (which will be soon) I will try adding cooked shrimp. Can't wait!
