Ingredients

  • 1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, optional

  • 4 cups unseasoned stuffing cubes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

Directions

For sauce, combine the yogurt, 1/4 cup of fennel, lemon juice, chives, salt if desired and pepper in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
In a large skillet, saute celery and onion in oil until tender. Remove from the heat. Stir in the croutons, broth, eggs and remaining fennel.
Spoon about 1 cup stuffing mixture onto each fillet; roll fish around stuffing. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Top each with a lemon slice.
