Ingredients
  • 1 pound lump crab meat
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes cereal
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
  • 2 small red bell peppers, stemmed, halved lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed
  • 2 small yellow or orange bell peppers, stemmed, halved lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
Directions

Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine the crab, cornflakes, half the prosciutto, the mayonnaise, scallions, egg, 1 teaspoon salt and cayenne pepper, if using.

Spoon the filling into the bell pepper halves, dividing it evenly. Place the remaining prosciutto on top of the filling and drizzle with olive oil. Arrange the filled peppers in a single layer in a 13-by-9-inch glass baking dish or small roasting pan. Pour the broth around the peppers. Bake until the peppers are tender, 40 to 45 minutes.

Transfer to a platter and serve.
