1½ lb. crab meat, shelled and picked well for bits of shell (Blue crab is the sweetest and best for this)
3 Flax Sandwich Buns (or other low-carb bread)
4 oz. finely chopped onion
4 oz. finely chopped celery
1 oz. finely chopped green pepper (or mixture of red and green if you like)
½ oz. parsley
2 oz. heavy cream
¼ tsp. salt
Dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard powder
½ c. (1 stick) unsalted, melted butter
DIRECTIONS: Using a large bowl, carefully pick out all bits of shell from crab meat. Soak 2 of the pieces of bread with the cream and crumble over the crab. Crumb the remaining roll into fairly fine crumbs. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add celery, onion, bell pepper, salt, cayenne and mustard powder and saute until slightly tender. Add parsley and saute couple minutes longer. Pour sauteed veggie mixture over crab/bread mixture in the bowl. Gently toss ingredients to mix well. Spoon mixture into 6 large crab shells (if you have them) , into individual 6 oven-safe ramekins or stuff into fish prepared for baking. Top with bread crumbs and bake in preheated 350º oven for 30 minutes (whole 1 lb. fish should be nicely done in that amount of time, but check for flaky done stage on your fish to be sure).
