Stuffed Shrimp and Crab Flounder

Monday, October 12, 2020
Stuffed Shrimp and Crab Flounder is one of my favorite ways to cook fish it's easy and totally bursting with gourmet flavors.

The flounder is in a white wine and rich garlic flavored butter that is very much like a scampi stuffing.

The flounder is stuffed rolled up and sprinkled with breadcrumbs and baked.

This whole meal takes around 40 minutes to make and comes out like a 5-star quality restaurant made it!

If you love seafood you can use any thin fish, we are just lucky enough to surf fish here in Florida and this was the fresh catch of the day.

There really isn't anything better than freshly caught ocean fish, but you first have to learn how to clean freshly caught flounder unless you buy it.

There are many fish markets you can purchase flounder in or buy it frozen, you won't get that same fresh taste but it's still will be awesome.

This is a freshly caught flounder stuffed with a scampi style stuffing and baked with breadcrumbs in a buttery wine sauce.


  • 2 pounds thin-sliced flounder, halibut or other white fish (4 long pieces)
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 3/4 cup Italian flavored breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup white wine preferably Pinot Grigio
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup freshly minced Italian parsley
  • Fish medley to use in the stuffing:
  • around 6 to 8 of each shrimp, scallops, pieces of lobster, broken up crab legs, calamari rings (if you have more than this just add it to the casserole for extra stuffing) I use around 3 cups of assorted seafood or all the same whatever you prefer.
  • salt pepper to taste
  • dash of cayenne pepper is optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Oil spray a porcelain style casserole dish or line another kind of baking dish with parchment paper. (it's important to have a nonstick pan as the fish is thin)
  3. In a medium-sized fry pan add the stick of butter to melt and saute the garlic until golden.
  4. Add the seafood medley you're using to the butter then add the parsley and wine.
  5. Simmer for around 10 minutes.
  6. On a cutting board take the long piece of fish and add a scoop of this filling on the filet.
  7. Roll it up seam side down and do the same for all of them.
  8. Adding each one to the prepared casserole dish.
  9. Pour the remaining liquid mixture and seafood over the top.
  10. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and granulated garlic, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper if using.
  11. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes.
