This was a fantastic dinner! I had to make four modifications for medical/dietary purposes using the same ingredients, just a lighter variety. I used one flounder fillet and rolled it up; cut out the butter and used 2 tsp. olive oil , subbed with egg whites and fat free evaporated milk. I am really trying hard to like fish with my new eating habits and this made it easy! The fish was tender and flaky with no 'fishy' taste. The stuffing is simply out of this world- very rich and flavorful. In fact, I totally felt like I was doing something wrong by consuming this because it was so great. I definitely will be making this recipe again and again.
