  • 1/2 green pepper, finely chopped (about 1/3-cup)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
  • Flour

In saucepan, cook green pepper, garlic, and parsley in butter and olive oil until tender. Stir in flour. Add milk, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Shred crab meat, removing cartilage. Add crab, sherry, paprika, and cayenne pepper to milk mixture. Chill for 2 hours. Shape into 1-inch balls using a 1-tablespoon scoop. Roll in flour, then dip in egg and water mixture. Roll in crumbs.
