Baked Stuffed Flounder
I watched an episode of Good Eats on Food TV and decided to try this recipe. It was easy to make and tasted awesome! There were no leftovers and everybody had seconds including my 7 year old! It also works well with Tilapia and boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts although you do have to pound them out to flatten."OMG! My first time following a recipe. WOW, it was easy and it made me look so good! Now people think I can cook.. haha. Delicious too!" - johnoneofakind

Baked Stuffed Flounder Preparation
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium saute pan over low heat, melt the butter; add the onion and a pinch of salt and sweat until translucent. Add the garlic and continue to cook for another minute. Add the spinach and lemon zest and cook until just heated through. Season with the salt and pepper, add the parsley, and stir to combine. Remove from the heat and keep warm.
Place the heavy cream and wine into a saucepan over medium heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, gradually add the cheese and stir until melted. Set aside and keep warm.
If the fillets are large, cut in half. Season each filet on both sides with salt and pepper. Divide the spinach mixture evenly among the fillets and roll the fish around the mixture. Place the rice into a 2 1/2-quart casserole dish and spread evenly. Place each roll on top of the rice, seam side down. Pour over the cheese sauce and place in the oven for 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
