    2 Tablespoons olive oil
    3/4 cup small diced red onion( 1 small onion)
    1 1/2 cups small diced celery ( 4 stalks)
    1/2 cup small diced red bell pepper ( 1 small pepper)
    1/2 cup small diced yellow bell pepper ( 1 small pepper)
    1/4 cup minced fresh flat- leafed parsley
    1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce ( recommended : Tabasco)
    1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
    1 1/2 tsp crab boil seasoning ( recommended Old Bay)
    1/2 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 pound lump crabmeat, drained and picked to remove shells
