Flounder, Tilapia, Grouper and Crab Cakes recipes
we LOVE fish and here are a couple more that we make.  also a crab cake recipe that we like but i have no idea if that's considered healthy or not!

Broiled Flounder Parmesan

2 lbs flounder fillets
2 T lemon juice
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 T mayo
1/4 t salt
1/4 cup butter, room temp
3 green oinions, chopped
1 or 2 dashes of hot sauce, to taste (we didn't use that!)
thinly sliced lemon and parsley for garnish (optional)

place fillets in a single layer on a greased baking dish or broiler pan; brush w/ lemon juice.
combine parmesan cheese, mayo, salt, butter, and green onions and hot sauce in a small bowl; set aside.
broil flounder filets 4 to 6 minutes, or until fish flakes easily w/ a fork.
remove from oven; spread w/ cheese mixture.
broil about 30 seconds longer, or until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.
garnish w/ sliced lemon and parsley if desired.
recipe serves 6 to 8 (unless you eat a lot like dh and i do!)


Tilapia w/ Capers and Almonds

3/4 cup flour
salt and ground black pepper
1 1/2 lbs tilapia fillets
2 T butter, divided
2 t oilive oil, divided
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup drained capers
1 dash lemon juice

mix four, salt, pepper.
coat fish in flour mixture, shaking off excess.
in a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 1/2 t butter in 1 t of the olive oil.
cook the fillets in batches over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden crisp; turning once.
transfer to a plate and cover w/ foil to keep warm.
repeat for each batch adding additional oil and butter as needed.
add remaining 1 T butter and the almonds to skillet.
cook 2 minutes or until golden.
add capers and lemon juice cooking 1 minute or until heated through.
pour sauce over fish and serve immediately.
(if you like a lot of flavor double the sauce if serving 4)


Grilled Grouper Recipe

3 T soy sauce
1 T sesame oil
2 T lemon juice
1 t ginger, grated (we used ground ginger)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb grouper fillets

in a mixing bowl combine ingredients.
wash and dry grouper fillets.  evenly coat each fish w/ soy sauce mixture.
arrange fish in a shallow pan and broil for 6 to 7 minutes, basting often w/ the juices from the pan.


Maryland Crab Cakes

1 lb fresh lump crab meat
1 cup low-fat mayo
1 T dijon or dry mustard
1 egg, beaten
1 t worcestershire sauce
1 t old bay seasoning
lemon juice
7 saltine crackers crushed
2 T fresh minced parsley

put crab meat in bowl.
mixed rest of ingredients and add to crab meat.
chill for 2 hours.
form 6 to 8 cakes.
place on buttered sheet pan and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown.

Note:  crab cakes can also be cooked in hot oil, pan- fried or broiled.  Also, some cooks prefer 2 slices of white bread torn into pieces instead of crackers.

Jen, that first one I make all the time, but with Tilapia!  I sub low fat mayo, reduced fat Parm, and just 2 T of Smart Beat margarine instead of the 1/4 cup of butter.  No difference in taste!  I also add just a bit of breadcrumbs to it to keep the sauce from melting off.  Its incredible!  My favorite fish dish!

Believe it or not, I've never made crab cakes! I like them, but just never got around to making them.  Thanks...I'll try yours!
