Ingredients:  
1/2 pound fresh snow peas

Directions:
Wash and clean snow peas. Split peas on top side, leaving bottom intact to form a little boat. Blanch in lightly salted boiling water for 10 seconds, then submerge in cold water for a moment. Remove and drain. Set aside to cool.

Mix all remaining ingredients very gently so as not to break up crab meat.

Stuff generously with crab meat filling, about 1 heaping teaspoonful for each snow pea. Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.

Serve these on your prettiest, simplest tray. They need very little extra garnish.

Personal Notes:
Melissa fell in love with these the first time I made them and frequently requested them for parties and gatherings. The recipe came from the Dinah Shore Cookbook given to me by Grandma Hough. Dinah's note: "This is as pretty a finger food as you'll find. It does not go a long way, as even dedicated weight watchers usually have 3 or 4. It's delicately toothsome."
