Makes: 10 servings

For the crab mixture:

1 pound crabmeat
2 stalks celery, finely diced
6 green onions, sliced and with roots and 2 inches of green tops discarded
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons good-quality mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 egg, lightly beaten
salt and pepper, to taste

For the topping:
2 tablespoons butter, divided into 10 pieces
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Mix the crab ingredients together and divide into 10 portions that are roughly the same size. Roll each into a ball and press firmly into a ramekin or clean crab shell. Dot the tops of the crab mixture with butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

Bake for 15 minutes or until browned.
