I don’t know about you, but I question most online fish recipes.
a.) because it’s easy to mess up a fish dish
b.) fish tends to be expensive so it’s a shame to try a recipe only to find that it’s not so great or that you screwed up somehow.
I realize that this post is about to be very contradictory, given that I’m about to tell you how to make a fish recipe via the internet.
The difference here is that this a tried and true homemade creation. I can vouch for the fact that you pretty much can’t mess this one up, and it’s really good. I use sole, which is a white fish that doesn’t have a really ‘fishy’ taste to it. It’s stuffed with a shrimp, scallop, and crabmeat mixture which you can tailor to your specific seafood likes and dislikes.
Eating fish is a really important key to a healthy diet, and so I say go ahead and enjoy a different type of ‘SOLE’ food with this easy and satisfying recipe below.
1 cup of Ritz crackers (crushed up)
5 pieces of sole (or however many you need to feed yourself/family)
¼ cup olive oil
3 jumbo scallops (diced)
5 raw wild caught jumbo shrimp (de-shelled, de-veined, and diced)
½ cup crabmeat
¼ cup olive oil
pinch of salt and black pepper
have a stick of butter out to use later
squeeze of lemon juice
**Make sure you have toothpicks**
What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Crush ritz crackers.
2. Prepare stuffing: Mix scallops, shrimp, crabmeat, olive oil, salt and pepper together in a large bowl.
3. Set yourself up to put the fish together. Place the crushed Ritz crackers in a bowl. Have a separate bowl with olive oil in it, and have the bowl with your seafood stuffing ready as well.
4. For each piece of fish, first coat with olive oil, then cover in Ritz crackers, then lay place in 11×14 pan coated with Pam.
5. Place a heaping tablespoon of seafood mixture in the center of the piece of sole, then fold one side of the fish over the mixture and roll to the other side.
6. Put one slice of butter on top of each piece of fish. Not even a ½ of a tablespoon- smaller! (I also like to sprinkle the extra Ritz crumbs on top of the whole thing.) This is the only bad part for you, but it’s essential. Just deal with it.
7. Place a toothpick in the center to hold together when it cooks. I ran out of toothpicks, so you should remember to get some unlike me.
8. Cover entire pan with aluminum foil. This will help it cook nicely. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes. Take the foil off after 30 minutes of bake time.
