Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add celery, green onion and garlic, and cook and stir for a few minutes until soft. Remove from heat, and stir in the crabmeat, bread cubes, egg, Romano cheese, lemon juice, and tomato. Season with salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and mix until well blended.
  3. Lay the haddock fillets in the prepared baking dish. Brush each one with melted butter. Place a heaping tablespoon of the crab mixture onto half of each fillet, and fold the other half over to cover. Secure with toothpicks if desired. Sprinkle on any remaining stuffing, and drizzle with any leftover melted butter. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil. (The dish may be also made ahead of time and refrigerated at this point.)
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then remove the cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes, until the top has browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork.

If I could rate this wonderful recipe with a couple more stars I would do that. This was so delicious...it belongs on a menu in a fine restaurant! I made a couple of changes only because I didn't have the ingredients listed but, OMG, it was fabulous too. This is what I did >>> I used store bakery bread, I cut into cubes, and while the oven was preheating placed the cubes on a baking sheet in the oven to dry for a few minutes. I used fresh Parmesan (shredded) in place of the Romano. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes so I substitued a can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano. (I diced the tomatoes even finer, using approximately the quantity of a fresh tomato.) The fish I had on hand was Cod. Will make this often. Great recipe to make for company if you know they like fish. Thanks JellyKO for posting this most delicious, simple, and eye pleasing recipe.

This recipe was different. I usually only make fish w/ breadcrumbs or spices. The stuffing was a little too moist. I'd probably cut back on the liquid if I made it again

This was good! I would definitely use a maine crab meat (a sweeter meat) instead of blue crab. Also be sure to really pat the fish dry before stuffing and baking or you'll end up with a pan of water.

This was a great recipe. I substituted three things from the orignal. First I used lobster instead of crab, because I had some leftover. I used the end of a loaf of Italian that I oven dried, and I used a small swet onion in place of the green onions (I don't like them.) This was pretty easy to prepare and the result was wonderful. Definately worthy of company. Thanks for this delicious meal. I'm sure I will make it again with lobater or try it with crab.

This is a great recipe, but it doesn't need all the fat!! There is over 150 calories worth of fat in each portion! I steam the veggies in a little water and don't add any butter and it tastes amazing and full of flavour. Shrimp also tastes great in place of crab meat and is a nice variation. I usually use low-fat parmesan, because that's what I have on hand and it works well. I really like the sweetness of bell peppers in seafood dishes, so I replace the tomato with minced bell pepper (using the same cooking process). This is one of my favorite dishes and is sooo much healthier without the oil and butter!

I made this for Valentine's Dinner and it was delicious. I had never cooked "non-shell" fish before, but it was simple. My only hint to cooks is to have your bread finely cubed (diced?) - or even use one of those unseasoned stuffing mixes instead of the bread. The consistency of the stuffing I made was a bit too chunky for the flakey haddock. I might also add in some parmesan next time - but was WONDERFUL even without.

This was absolutely delicious!! I made a few variations. I do not like celery so I substituted that ingredient for green onion. I also used a can of rotel instead of the fresh tomatoes. I also used fresh catfish fillets instead of the haddock only because the market did not have any fresh haddock fillets. This is definetly a keeper in the recipe box!
