Asparagus Stuffed Flounder

1/2 c Onion, chopped
3 ts Butter or margarine, divided
6 Flounder or sole fillets (4 to 6 oz each)
18 Asparagus spears
2 ts Flour
1 c Milk, skim or low-fat
1/2 c Sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt to taste, if desired
1/8 ts Freshly ground black pepper

Steam the asparagus until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Saute the onion until tender in 1 teaspoon of the butter in a non-stick skillet. Sprinkle the onion evenly over the fillets. Lay 3 asparagus spears crosswise on each fillet and roll the fillet around them. Secure with skewers or toothpicks and arrange them in a single layer in a greased shallow baking dish. Melt the remaining 2 teaspoons of butter in a small saucepan. Stir in the flour and cook the roux, stirring, for a minute. Gradually add the milk and continue cooking the sauce, stirring, until it begins to thicken. Stir in the cheese, salt, black pepper, and a dash or two of cayenne. Pour the sauce over the fish rolls and sprinkle them with a little nutmeg. Bake the fish rolls in a preheated 350 F oven for about 20 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
