Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill a pot with water, and bring to a boil. Cut zucchini in half, chop of the ends, and then scoop out the zucchini, leaving a thick shell. (you won't need the zucchini for this recipe, so save it for another recipe, or toss it out.

Stir until veggies are soft. Add crab meat and heat until the crab or imitation crab is hot. Remove from heat and add about 3 tablespoons of  mayo to mixture.

Take melted butter and brush each zucchini top and bottom and then place on baking dish or cookie sheet. Fill each zucchini with mixture. Top with a sprinkle of cheese and Bake on 350 for 20 minutes, or until cheese and mixture is slightly browned.

Remove from oven and enjoy.
