Crab and Herb Stuffed Peppers – Quick and Easy

There are many nights where there just isn’t enough time to make something fancy, but I need just a little more than a peanut butter sandwich (on gluten free bread, of course).  Crab-stuffed peppers are delicious and very easy to make.  You just mix everything together, stuff a couple of peppers and bake them for about 25 minutes.

This recipe takes less than 45 minutes to make and serves two.
Ingredients:
  • 8-10 oz fresh lump crab meat (don’t use imitation crab – it has wheat in it!)
  • 2 large bell-peppers (green, orange or yellow)
  • 1/4 cup gluten free bread crumbs (I used Ener-G)
  • 1 Tbsp mayo (organic and/or all natural is best)
  • 1 egg (slightly beaten)
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped basil
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped scallions
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 lemons
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F
  2. Slice the tops off the green peppers and remove seeds and white membrane with your fingers.
  3. Slice just enough off the bottom so they will sit without rolling around. (try not to slice a hole in the bottom)
  4. Mix all of the above ingredients together, adding one at a time, except the lemon.
  5. Fill each pepper with the crab mixture
  6. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes until the peppers are slightly soft, yet still firm enough to hold their shape.
  7. Let cool five minutes
  8. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice.
  9. Serve immediately.
