  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F

  3. Stuff the flounder with the crab cake, and press the sides down to cover the filling. Sprinkle with paprika
  4. Coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place the fish in the dish and bake for 20 minutes.

Scoop out some crab butter and place it on top of the grilled fish. Sprinkle fresh parsley on top.
