TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat, flaked
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 2 sole or orange roughy fillets (6 ounces each)


  • 1. For dill sauce, melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl; stir in flour until smooth. Stir in broth and dill until blended. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 2-3 minutes, stirring after each minute, until sauce comes to a boil and is thickened. Stir in lemon juice; keep warm.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the egg, crab, celery, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and butter. Spoon onto the center of each fillet; roll up fish around filling. Place in a 9-in. round microwave-safe dish. Cover with waxed paper.
  • 3. Microwave on high for 5-6 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork and a thermometer inserted into stuffing reads 160°. Serve with dill sauce. Yield: 2 servings.
