Chef John's Crab-Stuffed Sole Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2014
Made this recipe last night and WOW! the result was a company worthy dish and although it's quite rich tasting, really the only sinful part is the mayo. I used minced red bell pepper in place of the plobano, because it's what I had on hand. I skipped the last step of piping the mayo mixture on top to save time and just lightly doppled it on. Those were the only changes. We are trying to eat more fish these days and need new and different ways to eat it. If you are lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe's, they stock Dover Sole in the freezer section. I do imagine that this recipe would work with other fish as well. Watching Chef John's video was helpful. As always, Chef John scores another hit. Loved it!

"Wow! Thank you honey. This is really good!" That's what my husband said tonight when I served this for supper. It was easy to make and it is so tasty! Thank you Chef John!

I saw this recipe and just had to try it. I'm always looking for new seafood recipes and this one turned out very good. I couldn't find any sole, so I bought 12 oz of flounder. My fillets were maybe a bit bigger than sole, so it made 4 nice sized rolls. I tried to follow the recipe exactly, but I used normal italian bread crumbs because I didn't have any panko. Also, I used canned crab, which I hated to do, but it worked out fine. Because my rolls were a bit larger, I cooked them for around 25 mins. The seasonings for this recipe was delicious. I was afraid of mixing fish, poblano peppers, and cayanne pepper but it tasted great. Just a tiny bit of heat, but certainly not too much. The mayo mixture kept the fish very moist. Next time I'll do everything the same, but will try to find fresh crabmeat.

This was really quick and easy to make and turned out delicious. I used canned cocktail shrimp because I didn't have crab meat and I always use cornflake crumbs in place of panko or breadcrumbs. I also added a wee bit of the sauce to the mixture to make it a bit creamy. Loved the results and will make this a regular. Looking forward to trying it with crab next time. Thanks Chef John!

It was wonderful, even though I Made a booboo. I added the Mayo and zest in the stuffing. So I did make the topping for the rolled filet of sole and sprinkled the top with a little nacho spice. If hearing the guests say mmm, mmm all through the meal was any indication was any indication, I'd say it was a hit!
