Mullet Turbans
2 pounds skinless, boneless Florida mullet fillets
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups cornbread stuffing (see recipe below)
1/4 cup butter, melted
6 Florida lime wedges

Cornbread Stuffing
1/2 pound mild pork sausage
1/2 cup chopped Florida celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups toasted cornbread cubes
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon sage

Divide fillets into 6 portions. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper. Line 6 greased 10-ounce microwave-safe cups with fillets, over-lapping ends of fillets. Divide stuffing into 6 equal portions and place stuffing in center of each fillet. Brush tops with butter. Cook in microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating the custard cups every 3 minutes. Fish is done when it flakes easily when tested with a fork. Garnish with lime wedges.

Yield: 6 servings

Place sausage in 1 1/2 quart microwave-safe dish. Cover with paper towel. Cook in microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add vegetables to sausage and continue cooking an additional 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Yield: approximately 3 cups stuffing.
