1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
5 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/4 lb. mushrooms, sliced or 4 oz. can sliced mushrooms, drained
3/4 lb. medium Shrimp, peeled
1/2 cup fine bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley
Salt and pepper
6 Flounder or Sole Fillets, about 1 1/2 lb.
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup dry white wine or vermouth

Cook onion in 3 tablespoon butter until translucent. Stir in mushrooms and Shrimp and cook, stirring until Shrimp begins to turn pink. Add bread crumbs, parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Put a tablespoon of this stuffing at one end of each fillet and roll it up, reserving 3 tablespoons stuffing. Place Fillets seam side down in buttered baking dish; sprinkle with lemon juice.
