Stuffed Whole Fish

By author Bill via Dish Ditty Recipes


  • 2 Whole Fish (medium sized)
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 heaped tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Parsley (or 2 Tbl Fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 5 Grinds Black Pepper
  • 2 Slices White Bread (cubed)
  • 1lb Blue Crab
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper


Step 1
Start by clipping the fins and removing all the scales. Thoroughly clean and rinse. Dry well with a towel.
Step 2
In a medium sized bowl, combine eggs, mayonnaise, old bay, dry mustard, cayenne pepper, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, baking powder and black pepper. Mix well. Add in the white bread and again, mix well.
Step 3
Lightly FOLD in the blue crab. Do not mix to the point where you break the crab up completely. Stuff the crab into the cavity of the fish. Rub olive oil all over the outside of the fish and sprinkle fish with salt and fresh ground pepper. Place in a lightly oiled pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until filling is cooked through.

Another one of my father’s go-to recipes, this whole fish recipe is very simple to prepare (once you scale and clean the fish). You can use this same recipe with fish filets and instead of stuffing the fish, you can roll it.
