Flounder (Or Other White Fish) Stuffed With Shrimp

"This is best with thin fillets of flounder, tilapia, snapper, etc. They roll up easier. I've tried to correct the ingredients to reflect 1/2 lb shrimp, but it keeps reverting to 1/2 shrimp. Please use 1/2 lb shrimp. :)"

  1. This makes a delicious meal. I had a terrible time trying o get filet of sole fish which is very thin and perfect for this recipe. I thought I was finally getting some when I placed an order with safeway. What I rec'd was thick red fish, obviously not filet of sole and not right for this recipe. We made it anyway and it was delicious but didn't look very good at all. The thick fish didn't roll up well but all the wonderful flavors were there.
  2. Nice flavor combinations! The hardest part was rolling the fillets. I dropped the shrimp into boiling water and removed them after about 30 seconds, running cold water over the shrimp to stop the cooking process. Then I made the recipe as written, but used only 1/3 cup butter, topping the fillets with extra shrimp for the last 8 minutes in the oven.

  3. Oh My Gosh, what a great treat!. I did make one change, as I'm not much of a wine fan I replaced it with a dose of half and half. It came out delicious and quite special. Perfect for guests or holidays as well as being something lovely for the family. It's not difficult to to make (I used pickerel) and rolls up quite nicely. Just to be safe I used a toothpick to secure the roll up. The blue cheese adds a very nice little flavor punch. Thanks so much breezer for sharing this tasty find.
