    breezermom's Note:

    The original recipe uses trout, but I really like it with a nice, firm white fish like grouper or snapper. The shrimp and crabmeat stuffing should hold together loosely. It calls for 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp fine, dry bread crumbs, but I couldn't get Zaar to take that. If necessary, you can add up to 1/2 cup additional fine, dry breadcrumbs to the stuffing mixture to achieve your desired consistency.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3/4 cup onion, finely chopped
    • 1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 1/4 lb crabmeat, drained and flaked (fresh is preferred over canned)
    • 1/4 lb frozen cooked salad shrimp, thawed
    • 1/4 cup fine dry breadcrumb
    • 2 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
    • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, minced
    • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, minced
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
    • 2 3/4 lbs fish fillets, preferably snapper, grouper, mahi mahi, trout (4 nice sized fillets)
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Saute the onion, green pepper, and garlic in 2 tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Remove from heat.
    2. 2
      Stir in the crabmeat, shrimp, breadcrumbs, parsley, chives, salt and pepper. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Cut a slit in the middle of each fish fillet, being careful not to cut all the way through the fillet. Brush the cavity with 2 tbsp melted butter; spoon the reserved crabmeat stuffing evenly into the fish.
    4. 4
      Place fish in an shallow 3-quart baking dish that has been sprayed lightly with cooking spray; cover and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Uncover and bake an additional 30 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. (Thinner fillets will require less time) Serve immediately.
