Don't forget to stop at the market fish counter and pick up your favorite white-fleshed fish to make these awesome stuffed fish rollups. Our Seafood-Stuffed Fish Fillets taste restaurant-fancy, but they're a cinch to make! 

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound imitation crabmeat, flaked
  • 1/2 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
  • 1 celery stalk, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 white fish fillets, such as flounder or cod (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the crabmeat, bread crumbs, celery, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and pepper; mix well.
  3. Place fish fillets on a flat surface. Spread crabmeat mixture over each  fillet, dividing evenly, and roll up jelly-roll style. Place seam side down in prepared baking dish. Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately.


  • Feel free to use real crab meat in your stuffed fish roll-ups, if you prefer. We use imitation crab meat to keep this dish budget-friendly.

Delicious! No changes needed. I baked it a bit longer because the celery wasn't as soft as I like, but kept the ingredients as written in the recipe.

This was easy and delicious, I added fresh lemon juice to the mix and on top of the fish!

Awesome recipe! use real crab and add some frsh squeezed lemon juice to the mixture and topping....I like to add a tbsp. of Dijon mixture..basically a crab cake can be made out of this mixture..

Was looking for a way to use up Whiting Fillets.... PERFECT! No changes needed! I love Mr. Food Test Kitchen recipes because of the ease of preparation! Most only have a handful of ingredients and I think that is what makes the best dish! I sadly miss Mr. Food himself.... but do LOVE the professional website and the Test Kitchen does a very good job of maintaining it!!!

I will use tilapia,,,looks excellent.

I made this on a Canadian fishing trip with fresh walleye. The guys loved it and all agreed it will be a traditional dish going forward.

Would talapia work??

I tried it and it was delisious and easy to make. Not to metion quick with little clean up.

Awsome fish receipe. Inexpensive and fast.

Excited to try this recipe. Will let you know how the family responds.

How can this be made gluten free?


Look for crabmeat in the canned food isle next to the tuna. Not expensive and just as good as fresh.

I don't like imitation crabmeat and can't afford the real thing, so I substituted salad shrimp. Delicious!

I don't care for immitation fish. What else could be used for stuffing?
