I had been told that Bluefish would be very "fishy" but this recipe was enjoyed by my entire family (including my 12 year old twins). It was quick and easy, which is the best thing for a single full-time working mom like myself.

My husband loves to catch Bluefish but hates to eat it. "Too Fishy" he says. But I tried it this way and he Loved it! So did my two young children. Great Job.

I made this recipe for my parents and grandparents. It was fantastic. We all thought that 70 minutes to cook was too much, so we cooked it for 10 minutes at 500 degrees with the foil covering it and about 20 minutes at 400 without the foil. I didn't use onion. Instead, I sprinkled the filets with garlic. I also used 12 oz. of stuffing instead of 8. It is an excellent recipe that goes great with bluefish.

We caught 16 Bluefish on a charter boat. Most of us don't like to eat bluefish (too strong) but this recipe was great! Everyone had 2nd's and the only thing different was we substituted fresh thyme for the dill weed.

This was a great recipe for bluefish. I changed the quantities of butter to Promise spread for cholesterol reasons, and I didn't even miss the butter. There is just the right amount of dill to give it the flavor without overpowering it. Thanks for the recipe!

I had heard a lot about blue fish and was afraid I would not like it. This recipe rocks. Make sure to remove the dark meat. Also cut back on the time somewhat or it will be a little dry. Other than that it rocks!

We all loved it! I used a large bag of stuffing and a little extra hot water. It was delicious. I did listen to the other reviewers and trimmed all the dark brown meat off the fillets. What a difference it made. Try this, you'll never toss back another blue!
