    jdrichardson's Note:

    This recipe came from that turned out wonderfully. It is a rich and spicy recipe that can be used on other similar fish as well. It was difficult to roll the fillets easily, so I placed one fillet on the bottom of the casserole dish, layered the crabmeat on it and topped with another fillet of Tilapia. Larger fillets would work out better for rolling. Also one can adjust the amount of cayenne as desired. Worked out great.

      Rolling the fish did not work well so I put stuffing between two fillets. This recipe is delicious and I'll definately make it again.

      This dish was the centerpiece of our Valentine's Day dinner and was perfect. I followed the recipe exactly, but did add some Old Bay Seasoning to the crab mixture and sprinkled a bit over the top for some added color. Very tasty - thanks for sharing.

      I made this last night for three of us and got nothing but serious raves. Both of my parents looked at me and said, "Keep this recipe." The next time I need a gorgeous looking and splendid tasting romantic dinner for two, this will be it. The sweet flavor of the crab combined with the tender flesh of the tilapia made this a simply outstanding dish. Red Lobster eat your heart out, this is far and away the best seafood entree I've ever eaten. Thanks for posting this, it is a keeper
