"Carolyn Glassmoyer wraps flounder around succulent shrimp in this elegant from-the-sea favorite. Its delicate fish flavor melds perfectly with the milk mustard sauce, she notes from Shillington, Pennsylvania."

I was so excited to try this recipe with the fresh flounder I just purchased. I followed the directions but it just didn't turn out. The fish turned to mush and the sauce was okay.

I'm not crazy about flounder so I made this recipe with cod. The sauce is great! I'm thinking of new ways to use it.

I REALLY enjoyed this, great flavor and easy to make. I would have given it 5 stars, but my honey (who LOVES seafood), while he rated it "good" was not overly wowed.
