These fillets are elegant enough for company but truly no trouble to make. Fish is abundant here in South Florida, and 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 dish is one of my husband's favorites. —Mary Tuthill, Fort Myers Beach, Florida

  • 4 sole or cod fillets, or fish fillets of your choice (6 ounces each)
  • 1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, drained and flaked, or 1 cup imitation crabmeat, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • Paprika, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place fillets in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, until fish flakes easily with a fork, 18-22 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the crab, cheese, mayonnaise and lemon juice.
  2. Drain cooking juices from baking dish; spoon crab mixture over fillets. Broil 4-5 in. from the heat until topping is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with almonds and, if desired, paprika.
