- 2 (10-ounce) flounder fillets
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
- Uncle Bubba's Crab Cake Mix, recipe follows
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- Cooking spray
- 1 (1-inch) slice Crab Butter, recipe follows
- Fresh parsley, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Sprinkle flounder with salt and pepper. Using a fillet knife, carefully open the flounder by cutting along the left and right sides of the seam down the middle of the fish to make pockets. Lay the cut sides back.
Stuff the flounder with the Crab Cake Mix, and press the sides down to cover the filling. Sprinkle with paprika.
Coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place the fish in the dish and bake for 20 minutes. Without removing the dish from the oven, turn the oven to broil and broil for 5 additional minutes. When the fish is done, remove it from the oven. Slice a medallion of crab butter and place it on top of the grilled fish. Sprinkle fresh parsley on top for added color.
