[recipe] Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Usually make crab hand-roll with similar recipe, but thought this way would make good appetizers -- bite-sized and don't get soggy

[ At the Grocery Store ]
- One can of crab meat
- One box of mushrooms sized "for stuffing"
- One bunch of Italian parsley or cilantro, whichever you prefer
- One small lemon
- Light Mayonnaise

[ Direction ]
- Pre-heat oven to 400F
- Make an 8"x8" aluminum foil baking dish

- Clean (rub surface with damp towel), de-stem, and place mushrooms in baking dish. Stem side up (so they look like little bowls)
- Coat with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake 15 min

- Meanwhile, combine crab, mayonnaise, juice of half lemon, chopped parsley, hot sauce to taste in a bowl
- Mix with spoon until smooth
- Cover and put back in fridge

- To serve: Transfer mushrooms onto place (pour out any mushroom juice)
- Spoon crab over mushrooms. About one generous tablespoon can fit per mushroom.
