Crab-Topped Fish Fillets
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Wonderful recipe! Used salmon, and just plopped the crab mixture on top before baking it. Also left off the almonds (which I despise). Turned out very well!
This recipe is very similar to our favorite Tilapia Parmesan recipe, so I was intrigued to try it, and I wasn't disappointed! The addition of crab really changed the flavor profile of the dish. Obviously, I used tilapia instead of cod, and I cut the recipe in half because I'm cooking for two. My tilapia fillets were a little thin, so instead of baking them first, I broiled them for a couple minutes each side and then added the topping and broiled for two more minutes. They turned out beautiful and delicious! Excellent recipe!
This was such a tasty recipe. I also reduced the amount of mayonnaise and the amount of parm cheese to just 1/3 cup each. I used fresh jumbo lump crabmeat. I also used some Old Bay to the crab mixture. I lightly sautéed the fish then topped with the crab mixture and put both right into the oven. A most lovely meal. VFE.
DH prepared a TOH recipe for "Crab-Topped Fish Fillets" last night. He used frozen cod loins; we like them because of their uniform thickness. I patted them dry with many, many paper towels...worth the effort...did not have to drain cooking juices. Used king crab that I thawed and shelled...also patted it dry well. Followed advice of one reviewer about using less mayo.

As soon as I took this out of the oven I KNEW it would be a big hit! I used Basa (also known as Swai) instead of cod and added a sliced green onion to the imitation crab mixture. I did not top it with the almonds because my husband cannot eat nuts..... It reminded me of the cheesy imitation crab dish that you can find at the Chinese buffet. I will surely make this again ....... and again...... and again! Perfect for a quick yet elegant meal for family or company. 5 stars for sure! Susan Bickta Volunteer Field Editor
A favorite with my husband. Made as is and served with rice and salad. Love the almonds with the crab.
This was quick and easy to throw together. I toasted the almonds wondering how they were going to add anything, and man did they ever. Absolutely add the toasted almonds, they add great flavor. I'll be making this again.
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.
