DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté garlic, onions, celery, and parsley. Set aside.
  • Shred the crab meat.
  • Prepare the stuffing mix as per instructions on the box but DO NOT COOK. In other words, just mix the water, butter, and stuffing mix together, without cooking it.
  • Stir into the crab meat, add garlic powder, and mix until blended.
  • Spoon into loaf pan treated with no-stick cooking spray (DO NOT PRESS).
  • Brush lightly with butter, sprinkle with paprika, and bake covered in a 375°F oven for 45 minutes.
  • Remove covering, add parmesan cheese, and continue to bake at 400°F for 10-15 minutes to allow the top to brown.
  • Serve as a side dish, the main dish, or a bed for Shrimp Scampi.
