  • Total Time: 30-35 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 4 flounder fillets
  • 1/2 pound lump crab meat, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined, and cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs, plus more for topping
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a shallow baking dish and set aside.
  2. Combine the lump crab meat, shrimp, egg, breadcrumbs, parsley, green onions, half of the butter, olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Lay the flounder fillets flat on a clean surface. Spoon the shrimp and crabmeat stuffing onto each fillet, dividing it equally among them. Spread the mixture evenly over the surface of each fillet.
  4. Roll up the flounder fillets, starting from the wider end, and secure them with toothpicks to hold them together.
  5. Place the stuffed flounder fillets in the greased baking dish. Sprinkle a little bread crumbs over the top of the fish and drizzle the remaining melted butter over the top of each fillet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the fish is cooked and the fish flakes easily with a fork. The exact cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets, so keep an eye on them.
  7. Once baked, remove the toothpicks from the flounder fillets before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges or lemon slices. Serve hot, and enjoy! 


Optional- Serve the baked stuffed flounder with a creamy sauce on the side. Create a sauce by combining mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, chopped dill, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. This creamy sauce complements the seafood and adds a creamy element.
