Smoky-stuffed Fish Rolls

By : doreen T


1 lb sole fillets, or any skinless thin flat fillets, whitefish, tilapia, flounder, trout, etc.
4 strips meaty smoked bacon
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper
1 Tbsp chopped pickled capers
1 can, 85 gm, smoked oysters or mussels, drained and chopped
good pinch dried thyme, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
splash of balsamic vinegar
chopped fresh parsley to garnish

- rinse fish, pat dry with paper towels and set aside
- cook bacon till crisp, drain on paper towels, chop finely and set aside.
- remove all but a couple tsp bacon fat from pan; saute onion and sweet pepper till soft but not brown. Add remaining ingredients, plus chopped bacon, stir and saute till flavours are blended.
-preheat oven to 350. Butter a flat casserole dish. Place a scoop of the filling on each fillet of fish; roll up like a jelly-roll. Place seam side down in the buttered dish. You may use toothpicks to secure if you wish.
- bake at 350 for 15 to 18 minutes, or till fillets flake easily with a fork. Serve with chopped fresh parsley, and enjoy!!

CARBS - for whole recipe - 11.9 minus 3.2 fiber = 8.7 total

***** IDEAS ******

- I suppose this could be made as a simple layered dish. Place a layer of fish fillets in bottom of buttered dish, spread over the smoked oyster-bacon filling, then another layer of fish. Dribble with melted butter or olive oil and bake, probably the same time, maybe a bit less.

- stuff a whole fish - I made this once for a barbecue, it was a HUGE hit. Clean and dress your favourite whole fish, about 3 or 4 lbs. Whitefish, salmon, pickerel, whatever. Double the filling recipe. Stuff the fish, and tie shut. I wrapped in foil, and cooked on the barbecue for 1/2 hour, turning part way. I opened the foil after turning to get the smoky barbecue aroma, and to make the skin crispy. YUM!!

LEFTOVERS - if there are any - this is delicious cold. I put a cold roll on a bed of Mesclun mixed baby Greens, and flaked a bit with a fork. Topped with a chopped green onion (scallion), a few thinly sliced radishes, and this dressing - 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 Tbsp canola oil, few dots toasted sesame oil, 1 tsp tamari soy sauce, sprinkle of Splenda, a pinch of powdered ginger. Shake in a small jar, and pour over fish. Enjoy. less than 4 carbs total.
