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

What to serve with Crab Topped Fish

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

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 before baking

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.
