Crab Topped Fish

Crab Topped Fish is pretty and delicious too. I got this recipe many years ago from Taste of Home (find it here) and have been asked to share it many times.  

Make Crab Topped Fish with flounder, talipia, swai. Any white fish works well.

I always make rice and a vegetable with it.  It is our very favorite way to eat fish.

Now that I eat Low Carb, I would serve it with a low carb version of “rice” like THIS one made with broccoli or THIS one made with cauliflower. 

We also think it is great with Roasted Parmesan Asparagus or Simple Sauteed Squash, depending on the season.

It is served here with Zucchini Noodles Parmesan.

Crab Topped Fish

Ingredients:

1 pound fish fillets

1 6 oz can crabmeat drained and flaked

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tsp lemon juice

paprika

 

Instructions:

Place fish in a greased baking dish and bake, uncovered, in a preheated 350* oven, for 18-22 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Time will vary with type of fish used.

While fish is cooking, combine crabmeat, cheese, mayonnaise and lemon juice.Crab Topped Fish

Drain extra cooking juices from baking pan. Spread crab mixture over fish.

Broil 5 inches from heat for about 5 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. **Please note that it is not safe to broil in a Pyrex or glass dish–IT COULD SHATTER! I just recently learned this thanks to a kind reader and will not do it anymore. If you want the cheese toasted, use a broiler safe pan to do this step.

If you do not want to broil, you could also just continue to bake the fish for another 5 minutes or so to warm it through.
