Crab Stuffed Orange Roughy

What you need:
3 large fillets of fish. Small works too, but its not nearly as easy.
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 lemon

For stuffing:
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup milk
6 oz crab meat, imitation is fine, chopped
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon parsley
1 lightly beaten egg
2 ounces Parmesan cheese

1) Preheat oven to 375. Grease baking dish with melted butter.
2)Saute garlic and bell pepper in butter until tender. Blend in flour. Add wine and milk. Stir until thick. Remove from heat and add rest of ingredients. Combine well.

3) Using a fillet knife slice fish down the middle lengthwise. Fold back. Stuff fish with mixture. Fold flap of fish back over. The top of the fish isn't going to completely cover mixture.
4) Bake covered for 25 minutes.
This is one of my favorite dishes to make. Its fairly simple, but tastes amazing and looks very elegant.
