Bluegill Shrimp Garlic Alfredo on Pasta Best Fish Recipe


Bluegill is one of the best tasting freshwater fish. With it’s mild flavor, it makes for the perfect foundation for this outstanding recipe. I added shrimp to make it more of a rounded seafood dish, but it can do just fine with only bluegill (or any other fish). Start by heating olive oil, butter and scampi seasoning in a frying pan. Then cook the fish and shrimp on medium heat. Make the pasta and alfredo sauce separately. After draining the alfredo pasta noodles, place on a plate (or in a bowl), gently lay the bluegill filets (and shrimp) on the bed of pasta. Then pour the creamy white garlic sauce over the top. Serve with a side of garlic bread, and watch it disappear!
