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 in this fish recipe.

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 easy to make seafood dish so incredibly delicious is the stuffing, it’s so full of flavor.

How To Make Stuffed Fish

After you’ve made the wonderful filling (stuffing) here’s what you do…

Step 1

Spoon the stuffing onto the center of the fish fillet.

Step 2

Roll up the fillet and fasten with toothpicks.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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:

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Edamame Salad

Cornbread 

This stuffed fish pairs well with a light red wine such as a Pinot Noir. If you prefer whites, try a light Sauvignon Blanc.

    My husband was out of town last week and made this for dinner one night (just for me!) and it was amazing! Now that he’s home I’m going to double the recipe and make it for both of us!
