Absolutely delicious. Made a few changes since there were mixed reviews about the mayo topping and the lack of seasonings. Well first I used 2 cans of crabmeat, tripled the mustard, crackers and worchestire, added some garlic powder, minced onion, parsley and chili powder. To the fish I brushed on melted butter mixed with some lemon juice and garlic powder. To the mayo topping I used about 4 TB and added about 2 TB of sherry to smooth it out. Turned out absolutely delicious, although next time to make it more resturant quality I'll skip the mayo mixture on top and instead make a sherry cream sauce from roux, and pour it on just before serving for a more impressive presentation.
3.5 stars. It was a very easy recipe, but I think it lacked some flavor. It's a good base recipe; I would use more worch. sauce, maybe even marinate the fillets in the sauce before. The crab topping was good (still lacking some spice), but the fish was pretty bland. I think it would work better if you baked it in a pan that was a bit too small, that way all the juices and sauce/juices don't run all over and instead get absorbed by the fish & topping.
I made this recipe last night...I had purchased the crabmeat on a whim and happened to have flounder in the freezer. I did not have any green bell pepper or mustard powder. I used one tsp dijon mustard in it's place. It turned out very well, but a little bland. Definately needed more salt and I wish I had added some Old Bay, which I did have in my spice cabinet, but forgot about. My family enjoyed it, but agreed it needed just a little more pizazz. The mayo and egg yolk mixture on top was very good...reminded me of hollindaise sauce. It looked very nice on the plate, like something you'd get at a quality seafood restarant. I will definately make this again!
Completely Awesome! I have to admit I am impressed with myself...and I owe it to the recipe. It tasted just like we were in a restaurant...even better. I substituted the saltines with a buttery round cracker and dashed in some old bay. My three year old even ate it. Thank you for a great recipe!
Absolutely delicious, just as written. What a great recipe!
HELPFUL TIP: For a more gourmet look, I decided to put the crabmeat in the middle and wrap the cut strips of flounder around the meat, ...kind of like you would if it were bacon. I thought it looked a little better :) I also added salt to the fish. Then I added several dashes of old bay and garlic to the crab mixture. If I don't have green pepper, I use red. It's no biggie, and it brings some color to it. I only had a few eggs left and needed them to make something else that night, so I didn't make the topping this time but it does taste delish!!!!!!
Two words: DEE LICIOUS!!! I used two huge red snapper fillets because I couldn't find flounder. Seasoned them with a mixture of melted butter,Emeril's Essence,and minced garlic. For the crab filling I used ritz crackers instead of saltines and dijon mustard in place of mustard powder. Seasoned the filling with plenty of Old Bay. I had my doubts about the sauce but I made it any way and I'm glad I did. As other members have said,it looked like an omlette on top but a very tasty omlette. This dish is on the menu at my next dinner party. No need to get all fancy with fresh crab. Canned works just fine.
Wow! I prepared this recipe with fresh flounder and used imitation crab meat in the filler. Alterations to the crab mixture: added chopped onions and Old Bay. This recipe was so easy to use, with ingredients I already had in my cabinet (besides the seafood!). I increased the stuffing quantity and "wrapped" filets around mounds of crab. Was unsure about the mayo/egg sauce but it was the perfect touch! Makes a wonderful presentation and really tastes terrific.
