Broiled Crab Melts

16 oz All Natural Backfin, Special or Claw Crabmeat
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 tbs unsalted butter
4 tbs fresh lemon juice
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4 tbs mayonnaise
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp Old Bay
4 English muffins, halved, buttered and lightly toasted
4 tbs grated Parmesan cheese
Drain and flake the crabmeat. Remove any shell pieces. In a large skillet cook the bell peppers, the onion, and the garlic in butter over moderately low heat, stirring, until the vegetables are softened. In a separate bowl, mix the lemon juice, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, and Old Bay. Then fold in the crabmeat. Add this mixture to the vegetables and heat on low for several minutes. Divide the crabmeat mixture among the muffin halves. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and broil under a preheated broiler about 4 inches from the heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
