crab stuffed zucchini


I made these last night very good!
I put the on my bbq (didn't want to heat oven)

crab stuffed zucchini
4 zucchini, ends trimmed and halved length-wise
1 Tbsp unsalted butter(I used cooking spray)
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 yellow bell pepper, finely chopped
8 oz lump crab meat
1 tsp smoked paprika
black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup light olive oil
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (1 oz) part-skim mozzarella, shredded


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Scoop out the soft, seedy flesh of the halved zucchini leaving about 1/2-inch thick skins; place on a baking sheet.

Melt butter(I used cooking spray) in a skillet over medium heat; stir onion and bell pepper and cook until the onion is translucent (about 5 minutes). Gently stir in the crab, and cook for about 5 more minutes. Stir in paprika and pepper.

Place the crab mixture into a mixing bowl, and stir in the panko, mayonnaise, and cheeses. Spoon the filling into the prepared zucchini boats.

Bake in preheated oven until zucchini softens and the filling is hot, about 20-25 minutes.

Yield: 4 servings (2 boats each
