Crab-Topped Fish Fillets are elegant enough for company but truly no-fuss. "We live in south Florida, where fish is abundant," writes Mary Tuthill of F. Myers Beach. "We like to get together with friends in the afternoon, so I often need to whip up a quick dinner when we get home. This special fish is one of my husband's favorites."

"I didn't use nuts, because I couldn't be bothered. I picked the recipe, then read the reviews on here, and I was expecting it to be better than it was. I think in the future I'll use approximately half the mayonnaise. It was just Ok, not WOW! but so quick and easy I'm likely to make it again. I had it ready to go before the oven was done preheating. I just wish it was the kind of recipe that would be good cold, or good for work the next day."

"I've made this a couple of times for myself (as I'm a widow & live alone) & it is delicious! I use cod filets & shredded mild cheddar/jack cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese & do not use nuts, as I don't care for any kind of nuts w/seafood."
