62 Texas Coastal Bend tour guide Late Summer 2015 Cajun Stuffed Flounder What You Will Need 2 2-pound whole flounders cleaned with a large pocket cut in the center 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 sticks unsalted butter 1 cup diced yellow onion cup diced green bell pepper cup diced red bell pepper cup diced celery cup chopped flat-leaf parsley 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary 1 tablespoon minced garlic 1 tablespoon grated ginger 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons dry vermouth or dry white wine 1 teaspoon smoked paprika Dash of hot sauce Cajun seasoning 2 pounds medium-size raw Louisiana shrimp shells removed 8 ounces Louisiana white lump crabmeat 1 cup fresh unseasoned bread crumbs 1 whole lemon sliced thin What to Do Preheat the oven to 350F. Place the flounders on parchment-lined trays. Rub the skin with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper in the inside of each pocket. In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter. Add the onion bell pepper and celery. Saut until the onion turns translucent and then add the parsley rosemary garlic and ginger. Continue cooking to combine the herbs and add lemon juice and vermouth. Season the mixture with smoked paprika hot sauce and a light sprinkle of Cajun seasoning. Remove from the heat. Place the shrimp on a cutting board. Reserve a few of the whole shrimp to garnish the top of the stuffing on each flounder. Chop the rest of the shrimp in smaller bite-size pieces. Add the chopped shrimp and crabmeat to the mixture stirring to combine. Add only enough breadcrumbs a little at a time to reach the desired consistency of a moist stuffing. Set aside to cool. To assemble the dish spoon the stuffing mixture into the pocket of each flounder. Place a few of the shrimp on top of the stuffing. Season the fish with salt freshly ground black pepper and a light sprinkle of paprika. Add lemon slices to the top of the fish. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 15 minutes or until the thickest part of the fish easily flakes at the touch of a fork. For serving use two spatulas to gently move each flounder to a platter being careful not to break off the tail section. Serve with crusty French bread. Flounder is the gem of Southern Seafood cooking for its tender texture rich succulent flavor and versatility in the kitchen. Enjoy this classic Louisiana recipe.
