1 lb. crabmeat
Grated zest of one onion
2 T fresh lemon juice
3 T chopped fresh chives
3 T chopped flat leaf parsley

Salt and freshly ground pepper
t cayenne pepper

Warm the oil over medium heat.  Saute the onion and celery until soft, 8-10 minutes.  Let cool.  Add the crab, zest, juice, chives, parsley and mustard.  Mix well and then add the mayo to bind the mixture.  Season.  Cover and chill.
Spread on the crostini.  Top with parsley and serve.
