  • 3 sheets phyllo dough (14x9-inch rectangles), thawed
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Paprika
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 (6 ounce) cans crabmeat, drained, or three 6- or 8-ounce packages chunk- or flake-style imitation crab meat
  • ½ cup loose-pack frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried tarragon or thyme, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Unfold phyllo dough; remove one sheet. (As you work, cover remaining phyllo dough with plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out.) Lightly coat sheet with cooking spray; fold in half crosswise. Coat again with cooking spray. Repeat with remaining sheets.
  2. Stack sheets on parchment paper-lined baking sheet to make six layers. Coat top of stack with cooking spray. Sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until browned and crisp. Cool on baking sheet on wire rack. Break into large pieces; set aside.
  3. In large skillet, cook onion and celery in hot butter over medium heat just until tender. Stir in flour; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in milk; cook and stir until mixture starts to boil. Stir in crabmeat, peas, sherry (if desired), salt, tarragon, and pepper. Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Serve with phyllo pieces.
