  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tbs. fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb. jumbo lump crab

Preparation

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, celery, bay leaf and thyme. Season with salt and pepper and cook about 6 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and translucent. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
