1/2 pound butter
1 pound fresh crabmeat
1/2 pound shrimp -- peeled and deveined
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped green onion tops
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind

8 flounders

Melt 1/4 lb. butter; add crab meat and shrimp and cook on med. heat until shrimp are pink, about 10 min.

Remove from heat and add breadcrumbs, eggs, salt and cayenne and mix well.

Make a pocket in each flounder by cutting a slit down the center of the top of each fish; slide the knife along the backbone of the fish on each side of the center to create a pocket with two flaps.

Season fish inside and out with salt and cayenne; fill pockets with crab-shrimp stuffing and place in a large baking pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees, basting with a mixture of 1/4 lb. melted butter, 1 tsp. lemon juice and wine, for 20 min.; lower heat to 300 degrees and bake another 15-20 min.
