1 pound Crab Meat (White & Claw Mixed)
6 Empty hard shell crab shells
2 tablespoons Strained Lime Juice
4 tablespoons melted butter
3 dashes angostura bitters
1 tablespoon chives
2 tablespoons Lean Bacon, Minced Fine
1 cup cream
4 dashes Tabasco sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup fine bread crumbs
3 slices soft Bread


Figure two parts crab meat to one part soft bread. Moisten bread with cream and bitters mix. Saute garlic, shallots and pepper, with bacon. Mix everything thoroughly, stuff shells previously coated with olive oil. Cover with fine bread crumbs, dot with butter or olive oil, brown around 375 Fahrenheit. Seasoning is always to taste, of course; but these are better if a little peppery.
