Crab Stuffed Sole: Foodie Friday

Crab Stuffed Sole
Crab Stuffed Sole

The Feast of the Seven Fish continues... We have eaten: tuna, shrimp, clams, and now sole and crab. Are you starting to get full? We are only up to fish five...save a little room for next week's conclusion of the meal. It is hard to believe this is one meal and yes, there is also bread, pasta, and a token vegetable to eat. I think we are going to begin at noon and have some of the appetizers as lunch, this way we can eat dessert too, and not be over stuffed. That's my Christmas Eve game plan what's yours?

Now this recipe for stuffed sole is one I found on  Epicurious years ago. I've never felt the need to change it in anyway. So I will not be offering a Diane Balch version. Sometimes a recipe is just right... it's like when I've thought to put my own mark on a Julia Child recipe,... not. She is just too good to mess with, so here is the link to a wonderful dish.

Enjoy,
Diane

  2. Your Crab-Meat Stuffed Sole looks beautiful! I adore fish dishes, so your feast sounds wonderful to me - although I do like the idea of stretching it out over a whole day :) This week I've shared a recipe for Lemon Squares that is perfect for the holiday season. Thank you for hosting and have a lovely weekend!

  3. I don't think I've tried Sole. However, it's a fish that I'd like to try one day. I live the recipe you shared as crab is probably my favorite type of seafood.

    Thanks for hosting the party. Have a wonderful weekend!
