Directions

1 head butter lettuce or Boston Bibb lettuce, leaves separated and soaked in iced water

In a large bowl gently mix all the ingredients together except the salt and pepper and the lettuce. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove from the refrigerator and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary.

To serve, remove the separated lettuce leaves from the iced water, dry well and put on a serving platter. Add a couple of spoonfuls of the crab mixture into the center of the leaves, fold over and eat!
