Broccoli Fish Bundles

Meet the Cook: These bundles take a little time to assemble, but they're worth it! They're always popular at a shower or buffet...and they're great for an everyday dinner, too. This flavorful dish goes nicely with rice pilaf or a saucy pasta. -Frances Quinn, Farmingdale, New York

  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 18 fresh broccoli spears (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 6 Monterey Jack cheese cubes
  • 6 sole or flounder fillets (about 2 pounds)

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • In a saucepan, place broccoli in a small amount of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Rinse in cold water; drain.
  • For each bundle, place a cheese cube on three spears. Wrap with a fish fillet and fasten with a toothpick if necessary. Place on a greased foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper if desired. Bake at 350° for 15-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

    A nice way to combine things I usually serve together anyway- fish and broccoli.We tried it with tilapia instead of flounder and found it harder to stay wrapped. I used a toothpick to hold it together and needed to cook it a bit longer to make sure the inside wascompletely cooked. Tasted delicious!

    This was an interesting & different way to serve fish. My family and I liked it, and I plan to make it again. I may try different cheeses, just to experiment, but it's excellent just as it is.
