Some of the best Disney music comes from the film The Little Mermaid (1989). It is catchy, often funny, and gets stuck in your head (in my case for decades). One of my favorite songs is Les Poissons. As someone who grew up in French Canada, the song always made sense to me even though it was in English and French. This recipe is an homage to the Little Mermaid Les Poissons song where a crazed out chef makes a stuffed fish recipe and is upset that he can’t cook Sebastian!
WHAT DO YOU NEED?
- 2 lbs Swordfish
- 1 Cup Breadcrumbs (naturally I used gluten free)
- ¼ cup Raisins
- 3 Cloves of Garlic (Minced)
- ½ Cup Pine Nuts
- ½ Cup Parsley (Chopped)
- 2 ½ tablespoon Olive Oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
HOW DO YOU MAKE THE RECIPE FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID LES POISSONS?
- Set your oven to 400°F
- Depending on where you get your swordfish from meaning if you get it fresh from the store or a fishmonger, ask them to slice it thin for you. Otherwise you need to do this yourself.
- Spice your filets and then mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Lay out each piece of swordfish and then fill it with your mixture. Don’t overfill it because you need to roll it up.
- Once they are all rolled up, place them in a baking dish and top with them remaining mixture. Bake for 15 minutes and serve immediately.

It is really quick to make and is really fun to do especially if you have the movie on in the background!
