Crab Stuffed Tilapia

Tonight, I had a request for a dish that was good enough for a special occasion and healthy.  I immediately thought of my brother’s Crab Stuffed Tilapia recipe.  This recipe was included in our second cook book, Inspirations.

Although it sounds complicated, the recipe is actually quite simple! I was completely amazed the first time I made it. If you like carb recipes, try this Hot Crab Dip.

Is it a keeper?

We love this recipe (and we are not fish lovers)!  It’s well seasoned and full of flavor.  Plus, it’s so simple to make!  Serve it with a side salad or some brown rice and you have a very healthy meal!  Hats off to my brother for coming up with gem!  Great job, Dan!

  3. I bet it was delicious, light and satisfying. I have seen some of these from those guys that were driving around town selling boxes of seafood. One of those were the tilapia stuffed with crab meat. Hmmm.. sounds yummy! Visiting!

  4. I LOVE fish, and this sounds like something I would order in a nice restaurant in a coastal town on vacation. Thanks for the recipe and for linking to Food on Fridays!

  5. Crab and tilapia are two of my favorite things but I’ve never combined the two. I will try your recipe soon because it looks delicious. I found you on At the Picket Fence. I linked a recipe for Banana Heath Bar Pie that is fabulous.

  6. I’m so not a fish eater but this looks delicious! Thanks for linking up! I’ll be sharing this in my Feature Friday post!

  7. This sounds so good! Love finding great new seafood recipes. Thank you for linking up this week. Would love for you to add your most popular recipe to our Star Recipes Collection (25+ and counting so far)!

  8. We eat lots of tilapia at our house since it is so readily available now and is sustainable. I’m looking forward to trying this. Thanks for linking it to What’s On the Menu Wednesday at Dining With Debbie.

  9. Just Stopping by from TMTT. My husband loves to eat talapia, and I am always looking for ways to fix it so i will have to give this a try. I wanted to invite you to check out my Iron Chef Challenge This month’s themed ingredient is canned tomatoes, so link up a recipe using those and you could win a prize. It should be a lot of fun, hope you can join us!!

  10. I used to get something very similar to this at a restaurant that is now out of business where I live. They made it with sole. For the person asking about substitions, my guess is any white fish would work. I haven’t had this in eons, so thanks for the recipe so I’ll know how to make it for myself.

  11. This look scrumptious! I’d love for you to come share this at the Recipe Exchange I’m hosting. It would be such a wonderful addition! Hope to see you there.


  12. It’s times like this that I wish I wasn’t allergic to fish! Sure looks like an easy recipe! Thanks for linking up to Making Your Home Sing Monday!

  13. I have been looking for recipes for Tilapia. It is such a great fish along with catfish. Could the recipes be interchangeable???

    • The filling is very light without many overpowering flavors. I’m sure it would complement various types of fish. I have to admit, Ann, that I’ve never really had catfish. So, I can’t say for sure. If you decide to try it with catfish, let me know how you make out!

      Thanks for reading!
