Directions

  1. Melt 4 Tbsp butter in skillet. Add the green pepper, onion, scallion, parsley, mushrooms, and sauté until all vegetables are soft (about 5 minutes).
  2. In another large sauce pan, melt the remaining butter.
  3. Add flour and stir well.
  4. Add milk and cook until smooth and thick.
  5. Add salt, pepper, and the vegetable sauce from the skillet and the half and half. Bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat and stir.
  7. Add the crabmeat and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.
  8. Just before serving, add sherry and stir.
  9. NOTE: You can sub crabmeat with lobster--using the same measurements as the above recipe. For shrimp--use 2 cups of small shrimp.** Great with a tiny layer of cheddar cheese on top or green tops from fresh chives--chopped.
