Incredibly Good Rice Baked Stuffed Fish-Connie's

We all know that eating fish twice a week is good for us. Although I love, love my fried catfish, I had to find another way to fix the fish that would be healthier. Found this recipe in a really old cookbook of mom's. (I'd tell you the name of it except it's in threads and the covers are missing:)) I do remember eating this dish many times at mom's. Delicious! Enjoy!
