Special enough to serve when having guests, easy enough to make on weeknights. We love this, and found that buying them at a market is quite expensive. It’s so simple to make at home, using any White Fish Fillets. I’ve even stuffed Chicken Breasts with the same Stuffing mix. Serve with your favorite Vegetable, French Fries, and of course homemade Tartar Sauce.
INGREDIENTS: YIELDS 4 SERVINGS
1 ½ lbs Cod, Flounder, Tilapia or Haddock Fillets
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
½ lb crab meat, drained
1 mini sweet pepper, minced
2 TBSP celery, minced
2 TBSP onion, minced
2/3 cup Ritz or Saltines, crushed
1 egg, beaten
3 TBSP mayo
Seasonings: Parsley, Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Paprika
4 TSP Butter, melted
Make sure Fish Fillets and Crab Meat have no excess water or your stuffing will be wet. I always pat the Fish with paper toweling before seasoning and stuffing.
Butterfly each Fillet. If you feel a lot of moisture inside, pat dry again. Lightly Salt and Pepper the inside. Place a good amount of the Stuffing mixture inside and press closed. Don’t press too hard or the Stuffing will leak out.
Squirt Lemon Juice and melted Butter over the Fillets. Season Generously.
Bake at 400 ° F for 25 – 30 minutes or until Fillets are golden brown and flake with a fork.
