  • On your counter top lay out a sheet of parchment paper and top it with a layer of plastic wrap.
  • Lay out your fillets of salmon, tails away from you.

  • Then place the scallops on a metal skewer and set at the end of the flounder furthest from you.
  • Sprinkle the herbs over the fish and season with salt and pepper.
  • Using the plastic wrap pull the fish towards you so that the plastic begins to pull the flounder over the scallops.
  • Be sure not to roll the plastic into the fish roll.
  • Use a sheet pan to push the roll tightly as you pull the plastic toward you.
  • The roll should be tight and you should be able to remove the sheet of plastic.
