This recipe will introduce you to an inexpensive gourmet treat.

Preparation: Flake crab meat into strands, removing any cartilage.

Mix with sherry. Wash onions; remove roots and greens; finely mince white part. Wash and pat dry lettuce leaves; arrange on round serving plate. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites. When eggs begin to stiff- en, slowly add milk. When eggs are stiff, fold in crab, onions, salt and cornstarch. Eggs will tend to break down at this point into a frothy soup.
