    1/4 cup fresh parsley

    1 Tablespoon lemon juice
    1/8 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    Melted butter
    1 Tablespoon Paprika powder
    1/2 cup parmesan cheese
    1/2 cup butter, softened, divided
    3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
    2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil
    1/4 tespoon ground black pepper

-Chop the onion, carrots, and celery into fine pieces.
-Saute the onion, carrots, and celery with butter in a frying pan until the vegetables are tender (you may choose to start the onion and carrots before the celery as they tend to take longer to become tender).
-Add the parsley to the frying pan.
-Remove the frying pan from the heat.
-In a seperate bowl mix together contents of frying pan with crab meat, bread crumbs, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper.
-Grease a 9x13 inch casserole dish.
-Spread the crab meat mixture down the center of the tilapia, fold the tilapia around the crab, and turn over so that crab meat and edges of tilapia are touching casserole dish.
-Sprinkle melted butter and paprika on the top of the tilapia.
-Place casserole dish into oven and bake at 400* for 20-25 mins. The baked tilapia is finished when it is easy to flake the fish with a fork.
