   In this recipe Quebec snow crab is combined with brocolli,
  oven-poached and served on a sauce, nouveau cuisine fashion. This
  appetizer is the creation of Chef Denis Pelletier of Moulin de St.

    Cook brocolli florets in boiling salted water just until
  tender-crisp; drain. Generously brush 6 to 8 ramekin or custard cups
  with melted butter.
    Divide crab meat with brocolli among the ramekins. In a bowl, whisk
  together the eggs, cream and milk; season with salt, pepper and
  nutmeg. Fill ramekins three-quarters full with the custard and set in
  a shallow pan of hot water. Oven poach for 1 hour at 325F or until
  set. (A knife inserted in centre should come out clean.)
    Make Lemon Butter Sauce and pour onto 6 to 8 serving plates. Run a
  knife around the edge of each ramekin and unmold onto sauce.
  Lemon Butter Sauce:
    In small saucepan, heat wine and chopped shallot. Bring to a boil
  and reduce over medium-high heat until only 2 tablespoons of liquid
  remain. Reduce heat to low and whisk in butter, a few pieces at a
  time, until sauce is smooth and all the butter is incorporated. Whisk
  in cream and lemon juice. Keep warm in the top of a double boiler set
  over hot water until serving time. MAKES: about 1 1/2 CUPS SAUCE
  SERVES: 6-8 as an appetizer
