How to make a fish stuffing

  • The Basics


  • 1 ¼ lb boned fish fillets
  • 5 oz white bread
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 3 ½ oz onion
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 egg whites


Step 1

Roughly chop the fish meat. Even if you are using fillets, be sure that there are no bones remaining.

Step 2

To a sautepan, add the white wine, sliced onion, rosemary, a couple thyme leaves, and peeled garlic cloves. Place on the heat and cook until reduced by half. Filter and let cool.

Step 3

In the meantime, place the jar of the blender you plan to use to chop the fish in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Step 4

Pour chilled cream on roughly cubed white bread.

Step 5

Squeeze the cream soaked bread, then place it in the chilled blender jar with the fish. Blend until you have a smooth, uniform mixture. 

Step 6

Mix the fish mixture together with the wine reduction and two egg whites. Adjust the consistency: it should be soft and uniform, but not liquid. If needed, add more cream. Adjust the flavor with a pinch of salt and a grinding of pepper.

Step 7

The stuffing must not be heated to avoid losing the binding power of the egg whites. This stuffing is used for terrines or stuffing fish in general.
