Stuffed Whiting wrapped in Bacon

Wrapping fish fillets in bacon is a great way to combine two wonderful flavors into a unified dish. This recipe uses a simple breadcrumb stuffing. You can pack even more flavor into this dish by making changes to the stuffing, like adding diced celery, or minced jalapeño pepper.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 fillets of whiting (fresh or frozen)
  • 4 rashers thick cut bacon
  • 2 oz butter
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 1 cup fine bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • Pinch of thyme
  • Sea salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Melt the butter in a sauce pan, sauté the onion till tender. Add breadcrumbs, parsley, thyme and salt and pepper. This makes up our stuffing. Distribute the stuffing onto the fillets. Roll the fillets and wrap them with a rasher of bacon. You can secure these with a toothpick. Place these in a lightly buttered baking dish, cover it with foil and pop into the oven for about ten minutes. Remover the foil and let these cook uncovered for another five minutes or so. Serve them up with a bottle of Duck Walk white wine.
