Crab-Stuffed Flounder

Adding sweet and tender crab meat to fish takes a fillet to a whole new level. Many countries around the world have recipes for stuffed fish. In the United States, using fresh natural resources like fish and shellfish dates to the culinary practices of Native Americans. The origin of the first stuffed fish recipe is unknown, but there is a wealth of recipes. This one blends the complex flavors in Worcestershire sauce with creamy mayonnaise, all of which accent mild white fish and crab meat.
