Total Time

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

  • 18 fresh broccoli spears (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 6 Monterey Jack cheese cubes
  • 6 sole or flounder fillets (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning, optional
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Meanwhile, combine butter, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Transfer fish bundles to a serving platter; remove toothpicks. Drizzle with butter mixture.
