Starting with the short end, tightly roll the fish up and over the crabmeat mixture and shrimp. Arrange the fish rolls, seam sides down, in prepared baking dish.

  • To serve, spoon heated Romesco Sauce over fish rolls. Garnish with snipped herb and the reserved lemon wedges.

Editor's Note:

Thin fish fillets are necessary for rolling. If thick fillets are all you can get, butterfly them to make them thinner. Bake extra filling in the pan around the rolls.

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
