    JKiebler1's Note:

    We made this for a progressive dinner on New Years and it was easy and wonderful. This is adapted from "The Complete Mexican, South American, & Caribbean Cookbook" NOTES: I used vegetable stock and added 1 tablespoon of fish sauce for each cup of stock. I used butter instead of palm oil which is hard to find and not real good for you.

    1. 1
      Heat the olive oil in a pan over low heat. Stir in the onion and celery, and sauté gently for 5 minutes, until softened and translucent. Stir in the garlic and chile and cook for a further 2 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the tomato and half of the cilantro, and increase the heat. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, then add the stock. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir the crab, coconut milk and the palm oil (butter) into the pan, and simmer over a very low heat for 5 minutes. The consistency should be thick, but not stew-like, so add some water if needed.
    4. 4
      Stir in the lime juice and remaining cilantro, then season with salt to taste.
    5. 5
      Serve with chili oil and lime wedges on the side.
