3   asparagus spears, or 12 snow peas, trimmed and thinly sliced (about 1/3 cup)
8 ounces  crabmeat, any shells or cartilage removed
1/3 cup  finely chopped celery
1/4 cup  finely chopped red bell pepper
1   scallion, finely chopped
4 teaspoons  lemon juice
1 tablespoon  low-fat mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon  Old Bay seasoning
2-5 dashes  hot sauce
  Freshly ground pepper, to taste

1/2 cup  shredded Swiss cheese
1. Place rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat broiler.
2. Place asparagus (or snow peas) in a medium microwave-safe bowl with 1 teaspoon water. Cover and microwave until tender, about 30 seconds. Add crab, celery, bell pepper, scallion, lemon juice, mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, hot sauce to taste and pepper; stir to combine.

These were awesome! I made them today with the 8oz phillips claw meat (about $7 at Safeway) and did it without the asparagus or snow peas. This will definitely be a regular for me, especially since it's so low in points+ values for weight watchers.
