  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Slice the zucchini in half the long way, and scoop out the seeds and flesh, leaving a 1/2-inch thick shell all around. Discard flesh, or save for another use. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil, and immerse the zucchini boats in the boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove from the water, drain, and place into a 9x12-inch baking dish. With a paper towel, blot away any excess water from the inside of the zucchini.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion, garlic, and green pepper until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Gently stir in the crabmeat, and cook about 5 more minutes, until the crabmeat is hot. Keep the crabmeat in lump pieces as much as possible. Season the crab mixture with paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Place the crab mixture into a mixing bowl, and lightly stir in bread crumbs, mayonnaise, and white wine. Add a bit more mayonnaise to help the mixture hold together, if needed. Spoon the filling into the prepared zucchini shells, and brush each zucchini with about 3/4 tablespoon of melted butter. Top each stuffed zucchini with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese melts and the filling is hot, about 15 minutes.

My family did not enjoy this. Not sure how to improve it. Better to make plain crab cakes with expensive crab.

This filling is excellent. I used it to stuff mushrooms. It makes a lot. I will definitely make this again in mushrooms, maybe the next cocktail party I have.

Very tasty meal! The recipe easily serves 4, this is a very filling meal. Don't overload the parmesan, as it's a very strong cheese and will take away from the crab flavor. I served this with...

This was pretty good. I think cream cheese would have been better than mayo though.

The family loved this dish. Next time I will use a little less bread crumbs though.

This was surprisingly delicious! Changed the serving size to 1 and followed those measurements. I didn't have breadcrumbs (trying to be low carb) so I used Almond Meal, I omitted the pepper be...

Absolutely Delicious... Thanks for sharing!

made this with shrimp and imitation crab. it's zucchini season so used 2 larger (not huge) zucchinis. followed recipe other than adding shrimp and used garlic for more seasoning. this is yumm...

I was wondering if you could swap out the mayo and use cream cheese instead ? This sounds so could and can't wait to try. Thanks.
