The delicious shrimp-herb stuffing makes this fish recipe company-special. But it really isn’t hard to make. Our family enjoys fish, and we eat it often. —Marie Forte, Raritan, New Jersey

"Oh wow, this was great. I used clam juice instead of broth. The pimento adds a great touch. I always have it handy cause I'm in the south and we love our pimento cheese spread. It's simple yet elegant when plated. I placed asparagus next to the fish and poured the butter lemon sauce over it also and let it bake at the same time frame. Came out spectacular. Will do this again soon."

"Why would you use beef broth instead of clam broth? Way too much bread crumbs and fish filets too small."

"I used lump crab claw meat instead of shrimp, my husband gets gout from shrimp. I wanted to eat the stuffing by itself, yummy! I had a bit of stuffing left and made little crab cakes with it. I'm sure its just as good with the shrimp. Everyone loved this dish."

"We found this to be a restaurant quality dish..beautiful presentation as well. You could easily put this together ahead of time and freeze this as well. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp, though. I think the next time we are going to try substituting the shrimp with crab meat. We made the whole meal suggested in the magazine with this dish: Tomato Soup with Basil, Arugula Summer Salad, and Italian Cookies."
