Mama Grande's Stuffed Sole from

This is one of many signature dishes served by Mama Grande during our traditional Christmas Eve dinner. (The Feast of the Seven Fishes).

 The first course was always Aglio e Olio, followed by many other types of seafood. There were always several types of bacala (dried, salted, codfish), as well as clams, shrimp, calamari (squid) and eel.

This was my favorite!

  • 1/4 Cup white wine

  • 1/4 Cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 Cup green pepper
  • 1/4 Cup chopped celery
