Crab-Stuffed Tilapia with Orange Sauce

Yummy dinner's the recipe!

1 Tilapia filet per person
1/3 c crab cake mix (I purchase mine already done at the fish counter)

Oil the bottom of your baking dish with olive oil. Coat the tilapia with the olive oil then place the crab cake mix on one half of the filet. Fold the other half over the top and secure with toothpick. Salt, pepper and paprika to taste. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

While fish is cooking mix in sauce pan 1/2 cup orange juice, 1 T orange zest, pinch of salt, and you may add 2 T citrus juice if you wish. Bring to boil and cook about 1-2 minutes, reducing slightly. Turn heat down to simmer and begin whisking in 1/2 cup butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly. If you have the heat too high or fail to whisk the sauce will "break". After the entire 1/2 C butter is added continue whisking until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat and serve over the fish. DELICIOUS!!! Even my picky husband, who genearlly prefers catsup on his fish (ick) loved this.
