Rock Island Tilapia
Red Lobster Recipe
8 oz. crab meat
2 cups cheese and garlic croutons (crushed)
10 oz. prepared Alfredo sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons salt-free all purpose seasoning
6 (5-6 oz) tilapia fillets, skin off
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon butter
6 oz. lobster meat, chopped
1 can seafood bisque or cream of shrimp soup
seafood seasoning, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To make the crab stuffing, in a large bowl, mix crab meat, crushed croutons, Alfredo sauce, lemon juice and all-purpose seasoning. Set aside for later. Place the Tilapia fillet (dark side down) onto a clean surface. Using a chef’s knife, cut pockets into each side of the fish.Open the pockets and spoon approximately 3/4 cup of the crab stuffing into the Tilapia. Flatten the stuffing slightly to approximately 3/4" high. Gently close the pockets and brush each fillet and the stuffing with melted butter and sprinkle with seafood seasoning.
Place the stuffed fish into a 9 x 13 baking dish with ¼ cup of water, being careful not to pour the water over the fish.Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the stuffing reaches 165 degrees.In a small pan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat, add the lobster meat and saute until tender. Add the soup to make the sauce to serve over the fish. Stir well.
