Flounder - Shrimp Combo

Hey Scott,

Instead of rolling the fillets around the shrimp, I laid them out flat in the baking dish and painted a generous amount of lemon-butter on them after which I lightly sprinkled some black and red pepper, garlic salt and dried parsley flakes. Next, I topped the fillets with several large butterflied white gulf shrimp and painted more lemon-butter. Finally, I lightly coated the entire combo with a few shakes of Italian bread crumbs.

In mid-oven I baked the combo at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Without disturbing the dish, I switched the oven setting to broil and re-directed the heat from overhead onto the shrimp and continued to cook for another 8 - 10 minutes.

Included in the dish was half of a 5-herb biscuit which I baked earlier that morning. I topped it off with a swirl of tartar sauce. You will also see a slice of onion and a sprig of fresh mint from my garden just to make the pic I'm sending you look nicer.

It turned out awesome! Thanks for the help.

Have a great day.

  1. Wow, that looks delicious, especially when I clicked on the pic and got the "big" view! We are true seafood lovers, and I will be trying this. :)

  2. Thanks Kitty. The meal was ABSOLUTELY delicious. Can't wait to do it again. The problem is that fresh flounder is kinda hard to come by where I live here in NE Texas. I can't wait for my annual Thanksgiving sojourn down to Carancahua Bay in south Texas where my son and daughter-in-law have a beautiful bay home. Maybe I can bag a few for the freezer from the pier to cook later on. My daughter-in-law, Andrea, is the champ of the family when it comes to catching flounder.

  3. I would like to invite you to join a cooking forum/discussion group where I participate. I think it's great fun to share recipes, pictures, and just chat (mainly about food). You seem to enjoy cooking and posting about your experiences, so I thought you might like to go over and check out the site. We love new members. I would love to see you introduce yourself and join in, but if it's not your kind of thing, that's fine too. My user name on there is Cooksie.
