    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 cup cooked or canned crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 4 sole, flounder or pike fillets (about 1 pound)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted, divided
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Grated Parmesan cheese
  • Sliced almonds

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine bread crumbs, crab, onion, egg, salt and cayenne. Spoon onto fillets; roll up and secure with a toothpick. Place in a greased 2-qt. broiler-proof dish; drizzle with 2 tablespoons butter. Bake, uncovered, at 350°for 25-30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, for sauce, place remaining butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Drain liquid from baking dish. Spoon sauce over fillets; sprinkle with cheese and almonds. Broil 5 in. from the heat until cheese is melted and almonds are lightly browned. Discard toothpicks.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
