This is a healthy dish using a potato to hold the arugula and sundried tomatoes together in the flouder roll topped with pine nuts. Cooking time depends on how thick th flounder is. You can also lay the flounder down next to each other, fill and roll up together in one roll, baking time may be a bit longer for this.

- 2 garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper

This was easy to make, but we didn't like it very much. The potato made for an odd and a bit tasteless combo. Neither my husband nor I finished our dinner and to fill me up the rest of the way I ate a PB&J and he had a bowl of Cheerios. This was also an expensive recipe so I was disappointed. I follwed the instructions to a "t", but no good for me. I gave it two stars considering it is a very healthy dish at least.
This is a nice and light dish. Next time I'll use more sun dried tomatoes and more paprika, but all in all this is a great change of pace from the typical grilled fish fare.
