“People along the Chesapeake can be tight-lipped with their crab imperial recipes. I coaxed this one out of a old waterman. Substitute sole or flounder when Pacific rockfish is not in season.” - by Chesapeake Baybe
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish.
- Mix the bread cubes, parsley, seafood seasoning, mustard, pepper, lemon juice, pepper sauce, butter, and mayonnaise together in a mixing bowl. Gently stir in the crabmeat until well blended, being careful not to break the crab chunks.

"Delicious! I wasn't really able to roll the rockfish, so simply topped the crab mixture over the fish and baked it flat. I added a bit extra Old Bay, lemon juice and tabasco at the end for additional ..." See moreflavor."
"I live on the Chesapeake Bay (Virginia) and this is pretty good! I used freshly caught rockfish from my next door neighbor. I will certainly try it again...." See more"
"I give the stuffing 5 stars but the fish only 3. I took the advice of one reviewer and used only about 2/3 of the crab. (I used imitation since I'm in Colorado). It was very yummy but rich. The fi..." See moresh however was bland. I did salt and pepper it before I stuffed it even though the recipe didn't say to. When it was almost done baking I sprinkled some paprika on the top to give some color. It looked sickly without it. Next time I will use some Old Bay on the fish itself. Overall very good and I will make it again. The family loved it."
