Cut peppers into quarters.
To prepare aioli, whirl peppers, garlic, salt, vinegar, and egg in a blender or food processor until smooth.
With motor running, add salad oil and the 1/2 cup olive oil in a thin, steady stream; continue to whirl until aioli is smooth.
If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Rinse crab pieces, pat dry, and pile onto a platter.
