Tonight, I had a request for a dish that was good enough for a special occasion and healthy. I immediately thought of my brother’s Crab Stuffed Talapia recipe. This recipe was included in our second cook book, Inspirations.
Although it sounds complicated, the recipe is actually quite simple! I was completely amazed the first time I made it.
½ cup lump crab meat
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup pepper-jack cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
4 talapia (can substitute flounder) fillets, thawed
1 tablespoon butter, melted
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon dill
salt and pepper to taste
Mix together all filling ingredients. Cut a slit into the center of fish, making a pocket for the filling. Fill each pocket with 1/4 of the filling. Brush fish with melted butter. Sprinkle paprika, salt, pepper and dill on top of fish. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Fish will flake apart when done. Serve with a lemon wedge.
Was it a keeper?
We love this recipe (and we are not fish lovers)! It’s well seasoned and full of flavor. Plus, it’s so simple to make! Serve it with a side salad or some brown rice and you have a very healthy meal! Hats off to my brother for coming up with gem! Great job, Dan!
