Thanksgiving side dish: Stuffed acorn squash with crab

23November 2021

Stuffed acorn squash with panko-crusted crab makes for a delicious Thanksgiving side dish.

“An acorn squash filled with ‘stuffing,’ this dish is quintessential fall. In fact, this dish is high in protein and gluten-free, thanks to the cheesy, gluten-free panko-crusted crab, and perfect for guests or family members who may follow a specialized diet,” says Rima Kleiner MS, RD, a nutritionist and blogger at Dish on Fish (this recipe can also be found in the National Pescatarian Month E-Cookbook “Everyday Seafood Recipes: 65 Quick & Easy Dishes“). “And honestly, it doesn’t take much to complete this beautiful dish—maybe some leafy greens and a glass of white wine.”

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Place acorn squash halves cut side in a glass baking dish; set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium heat; sauté garlic and celery until tender, about 2-3 minutes. Add parsley and Old Bay seasoning. Remove from heat.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine crab, cream cheese and cooked vegetables. Mix to combine all ingredients; add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Using a spoon, scoop mixture into squash “bowls.” Divide mixture between squash bowls. (It is okay to over-stuff “bowls.”) Top with Parmesan cheese and panko or cereal. Cover with foil; cook for 45 minutes.
