Flounder Thermidor

4 Flounder Fillets (about 1 lb.)
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 tsp. black pepper
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
3 Tbsp. all purpose flour
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. paprika
Hot cooked rice


Cut Fillets in half lengthwise; roll up and secure with wooden picks. Place Fillets in a lightly greased 12"x8"x2" oblong baking dish. Pour milk in dish; sprinkle Fillets with black pepper. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove from oven, drain, reserving the liquid.


Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add reserved liquid; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thick and bubbly. Add cheese, stir until melted. Stir in lemon juice, pour over fish. Sprinkle with parsley and paprika. Place under broiler, about 6" from heat and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve over hot, cooked rice.
