Ingredients

2 T Butter
1/4 C Minced celery
1/4 C Minced onion
1 t crushed red pepper flakes
2 C Heavy cream
1 1/2 C Sliced white mushrooms
2 C Crab meat

2 C Bay shrimp, cooked (smallest shrimp)
1/4 t Salt
1 C Shredded cheddar cheese
1 C Shredded monterey jack cheese
2 Green onions, sliced

Directions

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat in a large saucepan. Add celery, onions and red pepper flakes and simmer slowly (sweat) the ingredients over low heat for 20 minutes. You don't want the ingredients to turn brown, rather you want them to slowly cook until the celery softens and the onions begin to turn translucent.



Add cream, mushrooms, crab, shrimp and salt to the pan. Turn the heat up a bit until the liquid begins to bubble, then bring the heat back down and let the mixture simmer for 20 minutes or until it reduces to about 1/2 the volume and becomes thick. Watch the saucepan carefully to make sure the mixture doesn't bubble over.



When the mixture has thickened pour it into a casserole dish. Combine the shredded cheddar and jack cheese and sprinkle the cheese mixture over the casserole. Broil the casserole for 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle sliced green onions over the top and serve hot over your choice of veggies, spaghetti squash, or low carb pasta.
