Stuffed Tilapia with Crab and Shrimp
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.

* 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.
