  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add celery, green onion and garlic, and cook and stir for a few minutes until soft. Remove from heat, and stir in the crabmeat, bread cubes, egg, Romano cheese, lemon juice, and tomato. Season with salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and mix until well blended.
  3. Lay the haddock fillets in the prepared baking dish. Brush each one with melted butter. Place a heaping tablespoon of the crab mixture onto half of each fillet, and fold the other half over to cover. Secure with toothpicks if desired. Sprinkle on any remaining stuffing, and drizzle with any leftover melted butter. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil. (The dish may be also made ahead of time and refrigerated at this point.)
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then remove the cover and bake for an additional 10 minutes, until the top has browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork.

This recipe was different. I usually only make fish w/ breadcrumbs or spices. The stuffing was a little too moist. I'd probably cut back on the liquid if I made it again

This was good! I would definitely use a maine crab meat (a sweeter meat) instead of blue crab. Also be sure to really pat the fish dry before stuffing and baking or you'll end up with a pan of w...

I made this for Valentine's Dinner and it was delicious. I had never cooked "non-shell" fish before, but it was simple. My only hint to cooks is to have your bread finely cubed (diced?) - or e...
