Crab Stuffed Flounder Recipe

This Crab Stuffed Flounder Recipe comes together with a delicious filling reminiscent to crab cakes. Enjoy this dish anytime you want a restaurant quality meal right at home!

My husband and I love a good seafood dinner. Seafood has such a gourmet quality about it that even the simplest recipe, like this crab stuffed flounder recipe, makes you feel like you’re something special.

Open up a bottle of wine, roast some vegetables and you have a delicious restaurant-quality dinner right at home.

I’m very lucky to have a husband who loves to fish, so we almost always have fresh fluke fillets. Fluke is what you would find in the summer and flounder in the winter.

The stuffing in this Crab Stuffed Flounder is just a variation of our favorite crab cake recipe, so if you find yourself with leftover filling like I did, give the cakes a try.

How to Make Crab Stuffed Flounder:

Ingredients you will need: 

Flounder fillets 
mayo
1  egg
bread crumbs
1  can  lump crab meat
old bay seasoning 
salt and pepper
1 lemon
4 tbsp butter
paprika 
parsley

I used to also include a can of tiny shrimp in this recipe, but we’ve decided we since liked Crab Stuffed Flounder better without it. You decide for yourself! 

In bowl, mix together mayo, egg and breadcrumbs. 
Add in the crab and the juice from half of the lemon. 
Mix in the parsley and stir to combine all ingredients.

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!
