Sam’s Seafood


1 Tbsp. olive oil
4 oz. shrimp, chopped fine
2 Tbsp. butter
½ tsp. salt
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning (to taste)
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 oz. lump crabmeat (or more)
2 stalks celery, chopped fine
3-4 Tbsp. Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
½ red bell pepper, chopped fine

Preheat gas oven to 400 degrees. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil and butter. Add the onions, garlic, celery and peppers. Saute for 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are wilted. Add the shrimp and season with salt and Old Bay (to taste.) Saute for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and place mixture into a bowl. Gently stir in the crabmeat, then the breadcrumbs a little at a time, adding more as needed to gently bind. Set aside to cool. Place filling into fish. Place the fish on a baking dish. Drizzle the fish with the butter and sprinkle with lemon juice. Sprinkle top of fish with salt, pepper and paprika. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until fish is cooked through. Remove fish from the oven and serve with lemon wedges.
