This baked stuffed fish may be made with any thin fish fillets. Sole and flounder are excellent choices, and tilapia can work as well. The fish is uniquely baked in muffin cups with the stuffing in the center. The stuffing is a combination of fresh breadcrumbs, sage, and chopped celery.
Serve this baked fish with your favorite sides, such as steamed vegetables, rice pilaf, french fries, or a tossed salad. Some homemade cornbread would be a good addition to the meal also.
- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds fish fillets (thin, such as flounder, sole, or tilapia)
- Salt, to taste (for fish)
- 3 tablespoons onion (finely chopped)
- 1/2 cup celery (finely chopped)
- 6 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon sage (dried leaf, crumbled)
- 4 cups bread (dry, cut, or torn into 1/4-inch pieces)
- 6 teaspoons butter
- Chopped parsley, for garnish
- Lemon wedges, optional
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cut the fish into strips.
Generously grease a muffin tin.
Line the prepared muffin cups with fish strips.
Sprinkle lightly with salt.
In a small skillet, saute onion and celery in butter until just tender.
Combine the vegetable and butter mixture with salt, ground black pepper, sage, and bread cubes. Add a little hot water if the stuffing seems too dry.
Spoon stuffing into each fish-lined muffin cup.
Dot the top of each stuffing center with about 1/2 teaspoon of butter.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Serve with lemon wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
- Make up some tartar sauce to enjoy with your fish.
- Add some crab meat, chopped shrimp, or mushrooms to the stuffing if you'd like, or mix in about 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.
How do you know when fish is cooked?
Fish turns an opaque color when it is done cooking. Test for doneness with a fork. When it is done, your fish should flake easily.
