Golden Apple Stuffed Fillets

1 cup grated, peeled Golden Delicious apple
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 cup minced green onion
1/8 tsp. dried thyme
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
4 sole, cod or other white fish
1/4 tsp. ground ginger fillets (4 to 5 ounces each)
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 cup chicken broth or water

Heat oven to 400; lightly oil small roasting pan. In medium-size bowl, combine apple, carrot, green onion, lemon juice, ginger, mustard, salt, pepper and thyme; mix well. Spread apple mixture evenly over length of fillets; carefully roll up. Place stuffed fillets, seam side down, in oiled pan. Pour broth over rolled fillets; cover with aluminum foil and bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until fish is opaque and barely flakes. Serve. Makes 4 servings.

Microwave version: Prepare apple stuffing mixture and roll up fillets as above. Place stuffed fillets, seam side down, in oiled microwave-safe dish. Pour broth over rolled fillets; cover with waxed paper and microwave on HIGH 5 minutes or until fish is opaque and barely flakes. (If microwave does not have carousel, rotate dish halfway through cooking.)
