Method Prep:20min › Cook:40min › Ready in:1hr
Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Lightly grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add celery, spring onions and garlic. Cook and stir for a few minutes until soft. Remove from heat and stir in the crab, bread, egg, Pecorino Romano cheese, lemon juice and tomato. Season with salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and mix until well blended.
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 cocktail sticks, if desired. Sprinkle on any remaining crab mixture and drizzle with any leftover melted butter. Cover the dish with a lid or foil. (The dish may be also made ahead of time and refrigerated at this point.)
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.
