Stuffed Rockfish Recipe

Chesapeake Bay Stuffed Rockfish

If you live on the Chesapeake Bay as I do you know that rockfish season is a BIG deal around here. You can only fish for striped bass at certain times of the year. This fish is like gold to me and it is such a treat when I get it. My daughter and nephew were lucky enough to be invited to fish by Captain Ed Kalb and Shane Woelfel (see photo below) caught a beauty.  I’m glad I am his favorite Aunt Kooky Carol and he shared it with me. My stuffed rockfish recipe is excellent.


  • 2 large rockfish filets
  • 1 lb. crab meat
  • 1/2 cup Hellman’s mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 egg – beaten
  • 2 tsp paprika (divided)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup dry stuffing mix (crumbly) – divided
  • 1/2 stick butter


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°.
  2. Remove all shells from crabmeat.
  3. Mix all ingredients well (except 1 tsp paprika,stuffing  mix and butter) and then add crabmeat.
  4. After washing and drying your rockfish filets, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Top each filet equally with the crab imperial mixture.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining 1 tsp of paprika over the top.
  7. Add 1/2 cup of dry stuffing to top of each filet.
  8. Top with pats of butter.
  9. Bake about 30 – 40 minutes or until top is golden brown and fish is flaky.
  10. I can not give you an exact cooking time as everybody’s filets will be different sizes.
