Crab stuffed Tilapia

Who would have thought stuffing crab meat into a tilapia fillet would evoke such an explosion of flavors.

Here’s a dish that’s not only light but can be whipped up in a few minutes and still make it look like you spent hours in the kitchen slaving over the stove. Once you get your filling going the rest is a breeze, you’ll have plenty of time to sit back, relax & enjoy a glass of wine.
