Why I Love This Recipe

If you love seafood, you most likely love crab and shrimp… especially when it is stuffed into some nice flaky white fish. This recipe will not disappoint!

In this recipe, we are using only the crab, BUT as the name of the recipe indicates, it has crab and shrimp. We use the shrimp mostly to cut the cost and availability of the crab in the recipe. If that is not an issue for you, that by all means use crab only. In this video, we used the crab only.


Ingredients You'll Need

4 Tilapia Fillets[url:1]
1 lb Paleo Crab Cake Mixture (Click Here for recipe[/url])
1 large lemon
½ cup dry white wine like Chardonnay
2 Tbsp Butter (optional, but gives a nice rich flavor and texture to sauce)
2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley chopped fine


Directions

Preheat oven to 400


Lightly dredge outside of fish with coconut flour (Please note flour is optional, but will make for a nicer sauce at the end, as well as give the fish a nice texture)


Add about 2 oz of crab cake mixture to inside of fish fillet (the side where the blood line is)


Roll fillet and place into an oven safe baking dish or sheet try


Place toothpick through fish.


Pour wine in pan

Transfer fish to a plate


Pour liquid into a pan and add a splash of wine


Add chunk of butter to melt into sauce

Notes


* Shrimp can be substituted for all of the crab to cut cost. If you want to use crab only, that will be excellent, but crab can be expensive, so cutting the recipe with shrimp will significantly cut that cost.


* If you want to make a "Piccata" type sauce, you can add capers at the end before draping sauce over fish.
