You can serve Flounder Filet Rollatini with a large green salad, or serve it with spaghetti tossed with pesto sauce.  It’s an easy seafood dinner that is ideal for a busy weeknight, and fancy enough to serve at a dinner party.  And it’s ready in less than 30 minutes!

Flounder filet is a white fish with a moist, flaky texture that melts in your mouth with every bite.

And, baked flounder fish = healthier!

Keep it simple.

Stuffing flounder filets with fresh pesto sauce and cheese will enhance and add lovely flavors to the fish.  Here, I used provolone cheese, but you can use mozzarella cheese instead.  I can tell you both cheeses will give a delicious taste to the fish.

I made these flounder rollatini’s a few months ago and finally had a chance to post it today.

My inspiration for this recipe came from one of our royal followers who wrote me to tell me she made one of my chicken rollatini recipes using flounder filet fish instead of chicken, and it turned out fantastic!

I just knew I had to try it!

Ingredients
  • 1 pound of thinly sliced flounder filets, (about 5 to 7 slices)
  • 2 eggs- lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup grated Pecorino cheese
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • pinch of salt and black pepper
  • ¼ pound of sliced provolone cheese
  • Fresh Basil Pesto Sauce
  • extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Lightly spray a baking pan with cooking spray.

  3. In the second tray, combine bread crumbs, both grated cheeses, parsley, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper.
  4. Transfer each breaded flounder filet onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Place one or two slices of cheese on top (you can cut the cheese in halves to fit better) then spoon some pesto sauce on top.
  6. Roll each filet and set them down with seam side down. Lightly drizzle with olive oil over them to help keep them moist while baking.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes. Cooking times may vary slightly depending on oven. Remove and transfer to a serving platter and serve.
  8. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.
  9. Serves 4 to 5

Here’s a Tip: Pesto Sauce is something I make all year long and keep in a mason jar in my fridge.  These days, pesto sauce is widely used as a wonderful condiment, and for so many recipes, adding to sandwiches, soups, chicken, fish dishes and more.

To make this easier, I used my favorite 3 breading trays, and one baking pan. 

Also, here is an easy recipe for Fresh Basil Pesto Sauce, just remember to omit the nuts.

      Thanks so much Susan! In Charleston as well! Flounder is very difficult to find here, but when I do, I buy a few pounds and freeze them. 🙂 Have a great day!!

    From what I understand the rule of thumb is that you shouldn’t pair fish with cheese, but do you think that only applies to yellow and orange cheeses? I noticed both of the cheeses you suggested for this are white cheeses. I’ve never tried provolone or mozzarella with fish before and now you’ve got me curious!

      Hi Nancy! Welcome to our blog! It’s so nice to meet you! And yes, that was the general rule of thumb for years, but nowadays cheese is added to a lot of fish recipes one way or another (especially we like to mix grated cheeses in our bread crumbs) and I know from my experience that provolone and mozzarella cheeses work well with these flounder rollatini’s. I really can’t say if any yellow cheeses would work since I never tried them with my flounder rollatini.
      But if you try my recipe, please let us know – we love to hear about it!

    I don’t know why, but your lovely blog is no longer coming up in my reader, so I am missing your postings. I must put it in again to see if it will remind me when you post something new!
    I just wanted to wish you both a wonderful and Happy Christmas and all the very best for the New Year!
