Mix together ingredients *except crab meat* to make a thick mixture.

Carefully fold crab meat into mixture either with a your hands, or a spatula, just until mixed. Do not over mix.

Over fill each mini phyllo shell with the crab meat, (about 1 tablespoon per shell).

Sprinkle lightly with paprika, for decoration.
