Stuffed Flounder and Rice

Using: fish and prepared veggies of your choice

1/4 cup EVOO
2 Garlic cloves, minced (or finely chopped)
1/4 cup diced Onions
1/2 cup shredded Carrots
1 shredded Zucchini
1/2 cup chopped Mushrooms
1/4 cup slivered Almonds 
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
Cooked rice of your choice (Jasmine, Basmati, Long Grain or Brown)
Wild-Caught Flounder (or wild-caught fish of your choice)
2 tbsp Butter or 2 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1/4 tsp Salt & pepper
1/2 tsp dried parsley

1. Sauté onions and garlic in EVOO ‘til translucent, add carrots then zucchini. Add mushrooms; slivered almonds. 

2. While all is cooking, prepare your rice separately. 

3. Add bread crumbs to veggie mix and season to your taste. Remove ‘stuffing’ from pan. 

4. Season flounder with salt, pepper and lemon and gently roll the stuffing inside the fish (have toothpicks ready) and brown on medium-low heat on the stove top. 

5. If any stuffing remains, toss with rice adding a splash of lemon juice. After fish is cooked through, remove and keep warm while preparing a sauce in the hot pan with evoo or butter and seasoning of your choice. You can use white wine and lemon juice as well. Get creative – it’s fun and rewarding! Buon appetite!!

Choose, eat, and live well! =)
