1 can whole tomatoes
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste
1 large redfish
1/3 cup chopped parsley

Make a roux with a large spoon of margarine and a half of a cup of flour; when brown add garlic, bell pepper and onions; cook a few minutes. Add tomato pasta and tomatoes and enough water to make a medium thick gravy. Season well. Cook about 1 hour adding more water when needed. Wash and dry the fish. Season inside and out with salt and pepper. Stuff the fish with the following stuffing:

3/4 can plain bread crumbs
1 can claw crab mom
1 cup cooked, chopped shrimp
2 green onions chopped
Salt and rod pepper to taste

Mix and add enough milk to hold stuffing together. Piece fish in roasting pan. Pour on tomato gravy and bake uncovered in 325F oven for about 45 minutes. Baste fish often. When almost cooked add parsley and lemon slices to the top of the fish.
