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. :)
