“This is really good. You can double the stuffing recipe and keep in the freezer ready. It is very easy and tastes like you spent a lot of time on it. This is now my favorite fish recipe, I usually make enough for 8 pieces of fish and cook 4, the rest of the stuffing stays in the freezer for another meal. You could also use this for other fish and chicken. Prep time given does not include 2 hours of freezing.”
