1 ¼ lb Halibut fillets (about 4 medium)

Gently fold together parsley, shallots, shrimp, scallops, bread crumbs, eggs and season with salt and pepper.

Lay sole fillets flat (with darker or skin side up) and lightly season with salt and pepper. Divide stuffing among fillets, fold thinner half of fillet over stuffing, tucking end under to form a packet.

Place 2 to 3 slices of lemon onto a parchment lines cookie sheet. Cover with fish rolls, seam side down.
