“My boyfriend and I just finished having this for dinner -- wonderful!! I had to tweak the original recipe, and what follows is the end result. I'm sure the crust could actually be used on all kinds of fish -- Chilean sea bass is pretty expensive (ours was almost $30/lb), but you could likely substitute any kind of white fish with good results.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make crabmeat crust, whip butter in electric mixer at high speed until it turns white and fluffy.
  2. Add crabmeat, parsley, red and yellow bell pepper, white pepper, salt, cayenne, and lemon juice until fully incorporated.
  3. Slowly add Panco while mixing on low speed.
  4. Roll crust between parchment paper until 1/2" thick.
