Crab-Topped Fish Fillets Recipe

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."
