Ingredients

  • 2

    Tbs (30 ml) butter

  • 2

    scallions (spring onions), green and white parts, finely chopped

  • 2

    tsp (10 ml) all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cup (250 ml) heavy cream

  • 1/4

    cup (60 ml) dry sherry

  • 1

    lb (450 g) crab meat, picked over to remove shells and cartilage

  • 2

    Tbs (30 ml) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

  • A grating of fresh nutmeg

  • 1/4

    cup (60 ml) bread crumbs

  • 1/2

    cup (125 ml) grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Directions

Heat half the butter in a saucepan over moderate heat and saute the scallions for 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the cream and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes. Stir in the sherry and remove from the heat. Stir in the crab meat, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased baking dish or 4 to 6 lightly greased ramekins. Heat the remaining butter in a skillet over moderate heat and stir in the bread crumbs. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the crab mixture and top with the crumbs. Bake in a preheated 400F (200C) oven until the cheese has melted and the filling is bubbling, about 15 minutes. Serves 4 to 6.
