Flounder Fillets with Parmesan Stuffing


  • 6 small flounder fillets, skinless
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper. Roll up, lapping small end over larger, leaving space in the middle for stuffing.

Place rolled fillets in a greased muffin tin. Spoon Parmesan stuffing into the center of each. Baste the tops with melted butter and bake until stuffing is lightly browned and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 20 minutes.
