Crab Stuffed Bell Peppers

LobsterGram's picture
This is one of the best crab recipes I have ever enjoyed. The stuffing stayed a bit crisp, the peppers were not overcooked and bursting with flavor and the sweet mild Dungeness crab meat melded so well with the fresh Mozzarella & Parmesan cheeses. That crab stuffing was to die for.
  Panko breadcrumbs 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Onion 1⁄2 , dry minced
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Panko bread crumbs 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Celery stalks 1 , chopped
  Minced onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Dry)
  Bell peppers 4
  Garlic clove 1 , minced
  Cayenne pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Shredded mozzarella cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Shredded parmesan cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Sauté vegetables, excluding bell peppers, in clarified butter until tender (about 5 minutes). Mix in the Crab Meat and bread crumbs. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stuff bell peppers and cover tops with cheese. Bake 350°F for 30 minutes covered with tinfoil. Remove tinfoil after 30 minutes and continue to bake for another 10 minutes uncovered until cheese becomes brown on top.
Serve immediately.
