6 cloves garlic, peeled

2 shallots, peeled

2 green bell peppers

2 red bell peppers

4 celery stalks

2 pounds Dungeness crab meat

Passion Fruit Vinaigrette:

1 cup passion fruit, frozen concentrate

1 cup orange juice, frozen concentrate

8 ounces mirin

8 ounces rice wine vinegar

4 cups canola
