Stuffed Zucchini with Chicken and Salted FishThis wholesome recipe includes fiber and protein wrapped in a lip-smacking flavor. Baked zucchini is generally made with different types of stuffing. We're using both boneless chicken mince and salted fish for stuffing our zucchini slices. You can also use canned salted or pickled fish for this recipe though the fresh homemade version will give you better results. If you do not prefer zucchini, you can use nice and firm eggplants as the stuffing base. In that case, reduce the baking time as eggplants are comparatively tender. You can also include these baked zucchini slices in a rich and creamy gravy with added spices. Another way to cook this recipe is to include it in a layered rice preparation.
