I’m bringing you another seafood recipe today! A Baked Stuffed Fish Fillet and it’s incredibly delicious!
I say “another” because I have so many seafood recipes available in my recipe index. A quick search on our page and you’ll see exactly what I mean. I love cooking seafood, from shrimp to salmon and every kind in between – it’s all good!
Part of my love for seafood comes from growing up in Louisiana. We never had a problem finding good seafood back home. Now, here in Houston I find I’m blessed with the same. If you don’t live in an area where you can easily get good, fresh seafood, frozen fish fillets work the same.
Baked Stuffed Fish
Today’s fish recipe is made with one of my favorite types of fish – catfish. Truly though, you could use flounder, sole or even tilapia successfully.
What makes this stuffed fish so incredibly delicious is the stuffing, it’s so full of flavor.
What’s In The Stuffing?
The secret to an incredible tasting stuffed fish dish is in the stuffing.
You will need:
For this single serving stuffed fish recipe, sauté diced bacon with chopped celery, onions, and garlic.
After the bacon has cooked and the vegetables have softened, stir in chopped parsley.
How To Make Stuffed Fish
After you’ve made the wonderful filling (stuffing) here’s what you do…
Spoon the stuffing onto the center of the fish fillet.
Roll up the fillet and fasten with toothpicks.
Place a little melted butter in the bottom of a small baking dish and add the fish.
Next, pour a little extra melted butter over the fish and add a splash of white wine or water.
Sprinkle the top with Parmesan cheese and paprika and bake the fish for 30 minutes.
What To Serve With Stuffed Fish
I like to serve something simple along with the fish such as rice or orzo.
If you have any of the stuffing leftover, add cooked rice or cooked orzo to the skillet you used to cook the bacon and vegetables in. Let the flavor from the bacon coat the rice or orzo, the flavors are fantastic!
Other single serving side dish options include:
This stuffed fish pairs well with a light red wine such as a Pinot Noir. If you prefer whites, try a light Sauvignon Blanc.
What To Do With Leftover Ingredients
You will use one slice of bacon in this stuffed fish recipe. You might consider using the rest of the bacon in any of these single serving recipes:
