Fish Rolls With Cheesy Spinach Stuffing

Fish rolls 002

When I mentioned these to Husband, the response was not exactly positive so I only made a few and deep-fried the rest. I don’t think that will be necessary the next time as his reaction was nothing but positive. You’d think that after all these years he’d learn to trust me a little more – after 28 years….

Oh yeah, once in awhile some things aren’t that great, but they still get eaten and just not made again, simple solution!

I used fresh Tilapia fillets for this as that is our number 1 go to when it comes to fish, however you can use the fish that is most appealing to your taste buds, just remember to adjust your cooking time to the thickness of the fish used. I also used fresh spinach in lieu of frozen, the choice is yours………….

Fish Rolls With Cheesy Spinach Stuffing
  • 8 large Tilapia fillets or any other fish
  • 10 oz bag of fresh spinach cooked and drained well or 1 box 10 oz frozen, thawed and well drained
  • About 1 cup grated Asiago cheese, or again your favorite cheese
  • 1 lemon
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • Old Bay seasoning
  1. Rinse fish and pat dry.
  2. Place a layer of spinach on each fillet and top with desired amount of grated cheese.
  3. Squeeze a few drops of lemon and drizzle a little butter over the cheese; roll up starting from from the smallest end.
  4. Place fish seam side down onto a lightly greased shallow baking dish.
  5. Brush with remaining butter, squeeze more lemon over fish and sprinkle with Old Bay.
  6. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until fish is tender and flaky.

Hope you enjoy as much as we did because this one is a for sure something we will be having again! Have a good one as I am out to pick MORE blueberries……………..

Fried Fresh Tilapia Filets

I think this is going to be a seafood eating week here at the Selph’s home! Our local Publix had  talipia on sale and it was so fresh looking I just had to buy some to fry at home as we did not get to our favorite restaurant where they serve it with the most amazing hush puppies you ever had pass your lips. I am still trying to recreate them here at home and getting closer to the flavor, but no cigar yet! And this week, all our stores have lobster tails on sale for that special Valentine dinner you might be preparing at home, and you know who helps me shop now that he’s retired! His idea is to have steak and lobster with a bottle of vino tomorrow night and no, I’m not complaining or anything like that, think it’s kinda cute, just not used to someone else planning meals! It’s nice to have company when I go shopping but, he wants to try everything new that comes out, sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s just plain horrid and gets fed to the cats; did you know cats will eat almost anything, well at least mine do! This recipe is just a simple way to fix delicious home fried fish, just don’t forget the lemon………..

Fried Fresh Tilapia Filets
  • 2 lbs fresh talipia filets
  • 1-1/2 cups white or yellow corn meal
  • 2-1/2 cups flour
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Old Bay seasoning to taste (I use about 1 teaspoon)
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1 egg beaten well
  • ¼ cup milk
  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a shallow dish and the egg and milk in a separate shallow dish.
  2. Dip fish into the egg mixture and then into the dry ingredients, pressing fish to coat well.
  3. Deep fry or pan fry in oil heated to 375 degrees, turning to brown on both sides.
  4. Fish will be done when the meat flakes easily with a fork and time will depend on the thickness of the fish filets.
  5. Drain on paper towels and serve with lotsa lemon wedges, homemade coleslaw and hush puppies.


Hope you enjoy!
