NoraMarie, this fish recipe is outstanding! I was lucky enough to find flounder at a market by me, as my usual one has a very limited selection. I did use all crab in this, but next time I will try the shrimp/crab combo as I think this would be even better that way! The stuffing had a very good flavor but the flavor of the fish was not lost in all of this. Very good and will be using again! Thank you. :)

This was excellent. I used hallibut fillets, which were on sale at the market. The stuffing had just the perfect amount of flavor. I did sprinkle a bit of Old Bay seasoning in, but that was the only change I made. For the shrimp and crab, I used 1 can each of baby shrimp and crabmeat, which I had on hand. I think this tasted better than some of the stuffed fish I've had in restaurants. Thanks!
