Combine the crabmeat with the next 12 ingredients in a large bowl. Carefully roll the fish fillets so the tail just overlaps the other end and forms a hollow ring. Secure the two ends with a toothpick. Place them evenly on an oiled, nonstick cookie sheet. Fill the centers with the crab stuffing, and slowly slide the 3 colored pepper rings over each roll to hold them together. Pull out the toothpicks once the rings are in place. Wipe a little mayonnaise or olive oil around the outside and top of each roll-up to keep them moist. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 350˚ F then quickly broil to brown the tops.
