Tilapia with Jalapeno-Crab Topping

Baked tilapia is certainly good for you, but it can be slightly boring if you don't provide enough additional flavor or seasonings. This recipe incorporates a jalapeno pepper-crab meat mixture. We used a can of fancy white crab meat here, but fresh cooked crab meat, finely chopped, would be a perfect alternative.

Tilapia with Jalapeno-Crab Topping Recipe

Tilapia with Jalapeno-Crab Topping


  • 2 8-ounce tilapia filets
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 6 ounces cooked white crab meat, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons feta cheese
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Chili powder to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Set tilapia on a lightly oiled baking dish and pat dry. Season with chili powder.
  3. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until tilapia is cooked through, white and flakey in the middle.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a saute pan to medium heat and add olive oil.
  5. Add onion and jalapeno peppers. Cook about 5 minutes, or until vegetables soften.
  6. Add crab meat and stir to heat through.
  7. Season with chili powder to taste.
  8. Add feta cheese and stir until cheese melts and combines with the mixture.
  9. Serve topping over the tilapia filets!
