Seafood Stuffed Tilapia

This is a copycat of Red Lobster's seafood stuffed Flounder (my fav thing on the menu there) that I found/put together years ago to satisfy my Red Lobster cravings. Now I prefer this to the original due to taste, price, and healthiness!

  • 6 tilapia fillets (approx. 3-4 oz. each), thawed
  • 3 oz fat free Philly cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup imitation crab meat
  • 1.5 oz cooked baby shrimp (frozen kind, thawed)
  • 3/4 cup sliced canned mushrooms, cut fine
  • garlic powder to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Spray a baking dish and lay 3 tilapia fillets in the pan.
  3. Soften cream cheese, then add crab, shrimp, mushrooms, and garlic. Stir until creamed.
  4. Place 1/3 of the crab mixture on each tilapia fillet.
  5. Cut the remaining tilapia fillets in 1/2 lenghwise (make 6 halves). Place on top of each crab topped fillet in a bowl like fashion (see picture). Secure with toothpicks if necessary. Sprinkle with seasoning salt or lemon juice if desired.
  6. Bake at 400 for 30 minutes.
Makes 3 (BIG) servings.
