1 6-ounce package frozen cooked crab, thawed, drained, and flaked 
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs 
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion 
2 tablespoons finely chopped green sweet pepper 
2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing 
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon or lime peel 
1 egg white 
1/8 teaspoon pepper 
Nonstick spray coating 
1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt 
2 tablespoons fat-free mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing 
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion 
1-1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish 
1 teaspoon finely snipped fresh parsley 

1. In a medium mixing bowl combine the crabmeat, bread crumbs, green onion, sweet pepper, mayonnaise or salad dressing, egg white, mustard, lemon or lime peel, and black pepper. Mix well. (If mixture seems dry, stir in 1 tablespoon milk.)
