Stuffed Sole Fillets not only taste delicious, sole is a good way to add Omega 3 fatty acids to your diet. Omega 3 may help reduce inflammation and risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and arthritis.

3 tsp Olive Oil
¼ cup diced Celery
2 large Shallots or one medium Onion, finely chopped

¼ cup dry plain Bread Crumbs
½ cup medium-hot Salsa

Place two fillets side by side in a small shallow baking dish. Spread salsa mixture evenly over each. Cover fish with waxed paper.

Cut each fillet stack crosswise in half. Pour pan liquid over fish. Garnish with parsley.

Tips & Notes
Sole is a source of omega 3 fatty acids, or polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids are considered essential because your body can’t produce them and must be obtained through diet.
Omega 3 fatty acids can reduce the risk of heart disease because they lower blood fats called triglycerides. Omega 3 fats are important for cognitive function and normal growth and development.
Sole and flounder contain .48g of omega 3 fatty acids per 3 oz. serving, according to the American Heart Association. A 3-oz. serving is about the size of a deck of cards. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week.
Children, pregnant women, nursing women and women who may become pregnant should not have more than 12 oz. per week of sole or flounder, because fish may contain mercury. Exposure to mercury can harm the human nervous system and damage the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs and immune system. Most people can have about 14 oz. of sole or flounder per week. Both fish typically contain .05 parts per million, or ppm, of mercury.
