Stuffed Flounder Fillets

¼ cup margarine or butter if making it dairy
1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
½ cup each diced celery and carrot
½ cup diced red pepper
1 (8 ounce) package sliced mushrooms
Salt and pepper to taste
8 flounder fillets
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (you can leave this out if you want to keep it pareve)
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium skillet, over low-medium heat, melt the margarine. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add celery, carrot and red pepper; sauté until soft – about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, salt and pepper and raise heat slightly. Cook until all the moisture has evaporated. Spoon an equal amount of vegetable mixture onto the center of each fillet and roll up. Place stuffed fish, seam-side down in a rectangular baking pan. Combine cheese (if using), mayonnaise and mustard. Spread this mixture evenly over the fillets. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Bake until fish is lightly browned – about 30 – 40 minutes.
