Asparagus Stuffed Flounder Recipe

Serves/Makes: 6


  • 6 flounder or sole fillets (4 to 6 oz each)
  • 18 asparagus spears
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • 1 cup milk, skim or low-fat
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, -shredded
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste, if desired
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
How to cook Asparagus Stuffed Flounder:
  • Steam the asparagus until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Saute the onion until tender in 1 teaspoon of the butter in a non-stick skillet. Sprinkle the onion evenly over the fillets. Lay 3 asparagus spears crosswise on each fillet and roll the fillet around them.
  • Secure with skewers or toothpicks and arrange them in a single layer in a greased shallow baking dish.
  • Melt the remaining 2 teaspoons of butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook the roux, stirring, for a minute. Gradually add the milk and continue cooking the sauce, stirring, until it begins to thicken. Stir in the cheese, salt, black pepper, and a dash or two of cayenne.
  • Pour the sauce over the fish rolls and sprinkle them with a little nutmeg.
  • Bake the fish rolls in a preheated 350°F oven for about 20 minutes.
