Buttery Garlic Crab Bruschetta Recipe

4 ounces (1/4 cup) salted butter

2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic

8 ounces crabmeat, special or backfin grade

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

8 slices good-quality Italian bread, sliced thickly

1/2 cup grated or finely shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the finely chopped garlic and saute for about 1 to 2 minutes. When the garlic just begins to color remove the pan from the heat. Gently fold in the crabmeat, pepper, and parsley. Set aside. Grill the bread on one side or lightly toast it on both sides under the broiler. Spread the crab mixture on the bread slices (on the grilled side, if grilling). Sprinkle each with about 1 tablespoon of freshly grated or shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Place the bread slices under the broiler or on the grill briefly, just until the cheese melts.
