  4. To make stuffing, combine crabmeat, mayonnaise, bell pepper, Worcestershire, mustard, pimiento, salt and black pepper in small bowl. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared fish pockets.
  5. Sprinkle fish with bread crumbs and drizzle with butter. Bake 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with fork.
