You will love this. It is my favorite way to cook fish fillets. This makes enough to stuff about 8 good sized fillets, I usually only do 4 so I keep the rest of the stuffing in the freezer for another meal. You can easily double this and have it ready for a very quick dinner. This filling is also nice with other fish or even chicken. Prep time does not include freezing time
- 4 sole fillets
- 8 ounces roasted red pepper cream cheese, at room temp (You can buy it with peppers or finely chop about 1/2 cup roasted red pepper and stir in)
- 1 cup baby shrimp (cooked)
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 small onion, finely diced
- 1 garlic clove, finely minced
- 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon lemon pepper or 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
- salt and pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
