Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large skillet, melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add the celery, onion, and parsley and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender.

Remove from the heat and stir in the crabmeat, bread crumbs, lemon juice and red pepper.

Spoon evenly over the fillets then starting from the small end, roll up each fillet jelly-roll style and place seam side down in the baking dish.

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and drizzle over the fillets; sprinkle the tops with paprika.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
