Shrimp-stuffed Bluefish

1/4 lb. butter
1/4 cup finely chopped shallots or scallions
1/2 cup flour
2 cups Fish Stock
1 lb. Shrimp, cooked, peeled, and finely chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1/2 tsp. salt
Few grains cayenne
1 (3 lb.) Bluefish, dressed and split with backbone removed

Saute the shallots in the butter over low heat. Do not brown. Stir in the flour and then the Fish Stock, simmer about 5 minutes and add the Shrimp, mushrooms, salt, and cayenne. Continue to cook until thickened.

Place this stuffing onto one half of the fish and cover with the other half, reserving a little to use as a sauce. Place in a buttered ovenproof dish and bake, uncovered, in a preheated 400 degree oven about half an hour, or until flesh flakes when fork-tested.

Place on a heated platter, spoon the remaining stuffing, and garnish with parsley sprigs.

4 servings

If a lean fish is substituted (Pollock, red Snapper, Haddock, Cod, etc.), fish should be brushed generously with oil before baking.
