This was very good. I will definitely make it again but I will modify the stuffing by adding celery and maybe broiling the fish for several minutes to make the bacon crisp.

Made this with white fish filets and it turned out very tasty - used OLD Bay seasoning and Paul Prudommes Blackened Redfish Magic for the "Herbs". I broiled my fish until the bacon was crisp,too. After moving the fish to a serving platter, I stirred the juices over low heat and it made a nice sauce to pour over the fish when serving. Will make this again - thanks for posting a great recipe!
