Stuffed Flounder Recipes - Updated w/Pics


I got lucky enough to catch a few flounder the other day. I want to stuff 'em and broil 'em. I know Paul P's recipe comes highly recommended, but I wanted to make sure this is it:

Seafood Stuffed Flounder

Someone also recommended the recipe from John Folse's Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine but i cant seem to find it. Anyone have it? I know there is one on his website called "Nathaniel Burtons Stuffed Flounder" but wasnt sure it that was the recipe.
Burton's Stuffed Flounder

Search button and google havent been much help...

re: Stuffed Flounder Recipes - Updated w/Pics


**UPDATE 08/21**: I went with the Chef Paul's recipe despite it being several pages in length by the time I organized it into a readable format. I think I dirtied about 1/3 of the dishes in my kitchen but it was worth it - easily one of the best fish dishes I have ever had.

This is the beginning of the stuffing mixture, after a spin in the food processor.


A blonde butter roux was made to help thicken up the stuffing


this is the stuffing mixture with the roux, green onions, and parm added then taken off the heat to cool


The cooled stuffing was added to the pockets in the scaled flounder with a small amount of cheddar cheese under it


Next, the bottom of the flounder was dusted with seasoned flour and fried in a black iron skillet in about 1/4" of oil @ 350 (not sure why this step is necessary but I figured why mess with the recipe??)


stuffed some red potatoes i threw together for a side



the finished product....


I thought this was going to be a giant, time consuming pain in the arse but it wasnt nearly as bad as I thought. While i did create a mess in the kitchen, it gave me some time to drink a few beers and enjoy the Saints game. I made 2 substitutions: chicken stock instead of seafood stock and I didnt have any oysters....I can only imagine how good this would have been if I had followed the recipe to a T. Anyway, this was a fantastic dish that tasted way better than I expected it to - by far the best stuffed flounder Ive ever had! By the way, the instructions mention adding celery but it is not listed as an ingredient....I just guessed and added 1 cup, chopped fine

I agree that it is the best way to prep a flounder.

I googled "Seafood Stuffed Flounder Paul Prudhomme", a few sites have the recipe. At the very bottom of the recipe it says "From Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Kitchen", otherwise there is no mention of him.

You did a very nice job on that. Not long ago, I did a crispy fried whole flounder, Savannah style. Basically, it was fried whole,in a cast iron skillet, after having been scored on both sides and dipped in rice flour. Darn tasty.

The recipe calls for cheddar cheese? That just doesn't sound good. Something about cheese and fish.

Looks good. I have a freezer full so I need to do something with them.

I want to try that Savannah gig as well.

The Savannah gig is good and crispy. In Savannah, it's usually served with a fruit based sauce like mango, for example. Not a lot of sauce, just enough to add some flavor. I think I read that it's a Thai based dish.

I need to try frying some other things in rice flour. I thought it was so light and crispy.
