Crabmeat Stuffed Tilapia

Crabmeat Stuffed Tilapia created by Anonymous

This recipe came from www.tilapia.ws 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.

    This is a excellent recipe. I make it in a small casserole. Talapia on the bottom and the top crab stuffing in between. I have made it for several holidays now.

    This recipe is AMAZING!! I will make this regularly. I added Old Bay seasoning to the fillets and spread the crab filling between two small fillets rather than rolling it. The flavor is out of this world! Wonderful blend of crab and tilapia flavors.
