Creamy Flounder Casserole

Yesterday on our excursion to town to do a little shopping, we decided to finally check out a restaurant that we had meaning to go to for a long time as our neighbors had just given us a two thumbs up on the place! That was the push we needed to go there and we were not disappointed in the least. Kenny had the lunch special of a flounder and shrimp platter and I had a shrimp salad, half of which is in my frig for lunch today! As we shared our lunches, I was amazed with the hush puppies and tried everything in my power to get the recipe from someone working there but to no avail! They had a tinge of sweetness like I’ve never tasted before in a hush puppy and the shrimp and flounder were lightly battered and melted in your mouth! This recipe is not battered and fried but comes to you in a creamy sauce with a taste of nutmeg…..

Caught many of these babies in my life time here in Florida!

Crab Meat Stuffing For Fish

Today is National Crab Stuffed Flounder Day and this recipe is excellent for flounder but may be used with other fish as well. Hope everyone had a nice weekend and the recipes might be fewer than normal this week as we begin the transformation of my poor kitchen. There will be a lot of tearing things out and one day this week we will have to go shopping for our new oven! Actually looking forward to the project and the new facelift we will be giving the kitchen, but for today, it’s Monday and Mondays are never good for starting projects or anything else for that matter…………
