  • 4 spotted trout fillets
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped fresh white mushrooms
  • 1 cup toasted bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning

Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan.  Sauté celery, onion and mushrooms until tender. Remove from heat. Add bread crumbs, sage, poultry seasoning, ¼ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Mix well.

Layout fillets on a work surface, skin side up. Spoon stuffing onto fillets. Roll up each fillet and place seam side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with 1 ½ tablespoons melted butter. Lightly salt and pepper. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until done. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillets.
