    Cookin'Diva's Note:

    Tilapia filets are baked with a topping of crabmeat, cream cheese and spices for a moist and flavorful fish entree. Feel free to add more Old Bay Seasoning, depending on your taste preferences. A parsley and lemon garnish makes it restaurant-quality!

      We enjoyed this although we felt it did lack a bit in the WOW factor. I expected great results with the crab and cream cheese. Maybe if I had used fresh crab. The flavor just really wasn't there. I did double the old bay seasoning. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Fall 2008

      This recipe was divine. It tasted like something you would eat in a gourmet restaurant. I had 3 pieces of fish and had enough mix. I also added a little parmesan to the 3rd filet just for a variety. It came out excellent. I am updating because I just made this again. I added shrimp that I cut up in small pieces. It is very good this way also.

      I thought this was "ok." I just felt it was lacking in the flavor department I guess. If I made it again I would probable use real garlic instead of the salt, and maybe some minced onion and more Old Bay.
