Hello everyone.

I thought I would share with you two recipes that I created this week that went over very well with my family.  Here they are.

(1) SCALLOP-STUFFED FLOUNDER

4 3-oz fillets of flounder

3 tbsp olive oil

1/4 lb. bay scallops (the small ones), rinsed and dried.

1/3 cup bread crumbs

1/3 cup peccorino romano cheese

2 tsp Herbs de Provence

3 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper

1 egg

Coat the bottom of a baking dish with olive oil and lay flounder fillets out.  Combine scallops, bread crumbs, cheese, herbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and egg into a mixing bowl. Mix ingredients together well to form a stuffing.  Equally distribute stuffing between flounder fillets and fold the fillets over, packing tightly but gently.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.

 

(2) SALMON CAKES

1 lb. fresh salmon fillets

1/8 cup olive oil

1/3 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup peccorino romano cheese

3 tsp Italian herb mix

3 tsp garlic powder

3 tsp onion powder

salt and pepper to taste

1 egg

4 tbsp white wine

Coat the bottom of a baking pan with olive oil.  Bake the salmon at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and transfer cooked salmon to a mixing bowl.  Flake the salmon into very small pieces.  Combine remaining ingredients (except olive oil) and combine into a firm stuffing-like mixture.  Make approximately 9 4-inch patties.  Place remaining olive oil into a shallow frying pan and bring to low-medium heat.  Cook salmon patties in oil at low-medium heat for 3- minutes on either side.  Transfer to paper towels and remove excess oil.  Serve with mashed potatoes or rice and vegetables.

I sincerely hope you try them out and feel free to let me know how they come out.
