    This recipe was great!!!!! The frozen tilapia I brought like some others wasn't large enough to roll so I layered it. Still turned out wonderful. I also used imitation crab, add fresh red pepper w/onion and celery. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!!!! I will add it to my collection!!! - 8/15/11

    Made this tonight and it was awesome. DH loved it so much he said he wants this once a week! As with others, my fillets were to small to roll, so I just put the stuffing on top and cooked it like that. Also I didn't have parsley and still tasted great!! Will definitly make again...and again! - 3/19/08

    The tilapia was too small to roll so I just put the filling on top and baked. It had a nice flavor, but I wouldn't rush to make it again. - 10/21/07

    I used only 2 TB butter to cut fat and used a touch of skim milk to bind it all together. I used imitation crab as I did not have any canned crab and it was great. I also used Old Bay seasoning which is a must in any fish recipe. We all loved it and didn't miss the butter and saved some calories! - 6/12/07

  • Love it! came out really good!!! I used imatation crab meat instead of canned. I also used Pam butter flavor spray instead of butter to drizzle on top and it came out really good and had a good crunch to it. I was able to half roll the fillets and rolled them back to back to keep in place! love it!! - 2/7/12

  • Fabulous! I used crushed ritz crackers in place of the bread crumbs though. I also used imitation crab. The Tilapia was a bit small to roll so I kinda put the crab mixture on and folded it over taco style. - 9/10/10

  • I didn't have crab on hand, so I added spinach and garlic to the saute. Made a panko crust with a smashed cracker and seasonings. Also didn't roll, but layered to cook. Then rolled whole thing into a wrap w/ a bit of chipotle salsa. Divine Fish Taco Wrap!! - 9/4/10
