I had been told that Bluefish would be very "fishy" but this recipe was enjoyed by my entire family (including my 12 year old twins). It was quick and easy which is the best thing for a single full-time working mom like myself. Read More

I love Bluefish but this recipe was horrible!! All you can taste is the stuffing mix and onions. There is no way to make it better. Read More

I made this recipe for my parents and grandparents. It was fantastic. We all thought that 70 minutes to cook was too much so we cooked it for 10 minutes at 500 degrees with the foil covering it and about 20 minutes at 400 without the foil. I didn't use onion. Instead I sprinkled the filets with garlic. I also used 12 oz. of stuffing instead of 8. It is an excellent recipe that goes great with bluefish. Read More

We caught 16 Bluefish on a charter boat. Most of us don't like to eat bluefish (too strong) but this recipe was great! Everyone had 2nd's and the only thing different was we substituted fresh thyme for the dill weed. Read More

This was a great recipe for bluefish. I changed the quantities of butter to Promise spread for cholesterol reasons and I didn't even miss the butter. There is just the right amount of dill to give it the flavor without overpowering it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I had heard a lot about blue fish and was afraid I would not like it. This recipe rocks. Make sure to remove the dark meat. Also cut back on the time somewhat or it will be a little dry. Other than that it rocks! Read More

We all loved it! I used a large bag of stuffing and a little extra hot water. It was delicious. I did listen to the other reviewers and trimmed all the dark brown meat off the fillets. What a difference it made. Try this you'll never toss back another blue! Read More
