Baked Stuffed Flounder

Baked Stuffed Founder is a tasty light dinner option for those nights when you are looking for something healthy. You can easily substitute Tilapia for Flounder if you prefer it.

I like to serve this meal with a nice salad filled with fresh summer produce.   I top the fish with lots of fresh squeezed lemon and a bit of tarter sauce.
