CRAB MEAT STUFFING

1 lb Crabmeat
1/2 C finely minced onion
1/4 C finely minced celery
1 clove Garlic, minced
1/4 C margarine or butter
2 C bread cubes
1 Egg
1T chopped parsley
1/4 t pepper, thyme, oregano,or rosemary
may be added if desired.
( I use 1/4 t of old bay seasoning)

Remove cartilage from crab meat. In a small skillet, melt margarine and saute onion, celery, and garlic until tender. Add crab meat, bread, egg,parsley, pepper & herbs and gently mix all ingredients.
This makes about 3 cups of stuffing, enough for a large fish.
Note the absence of salt. Worcestershire sauce,herbs or a drop of Tabasco sauce can be added if more seasoning is desired. ( this is why I add the Old Bay Seasoning)

You can use this to stuff fish, or chicken breasts , which I do and call it Chesapeake Chicken.
