Light and Easy Crab

January 14, 2011

We had a sunny, warmish day today, so I wasn’t in the mood for anything very heavy for dinner.  I was also short on time (imagine that), so I needed to fix something quick.  Something easy.  Something that didn’t involve a lot of beef and cheese.  I came up with this crab, which took all of 5 minutes to prepare.  I served it on top of some buttery pasta, but I think it would be great served atop of a bowl of soup or a green salad.

1/2 pound fresh crab meat, picked of shell (I used Dungeness crab)
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 glove garlic, crushed or minced
1 small tomato, finely chopped
2 tbs olive oil or butter
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a pan over medium-low heat.  Add onions and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring to prevent browning.  Add garlic, cook another minute.  Add crab, stir 1-2 minutes.  Add tomato, stir another 1 minute.  Add salt and pepper and serve.
