    Great recipe!! Next time though, I will skip the celery and maybe add some light cream cheese to make it creamy. - 4/20/16

    Super great dish. Extremely tasty and is a hit wonder. Would definitely make again... Only problem is the direction does not state weather you cover the dish or not when baking? - 8/9/15

  • I don't understand the 1 serving - is that all 6 tilapia filets??? 427 calories seems like a lot for just 1 piece of fish with crab stuffing. - 1/6/10

    Yes it is just one piece. You can cut the some of the fat by for going the butter and using a no calorie sub. It sure tastes great.
