Crab is a mouthwatering seafood dish that can be cooked in a variety of ways. Below are some hand-picked, delicious crab recipes to get you started:
2 cups of crab meat
1 cup of bread crumbs
1/2 cup of light cream or evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt
A dash of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon of dry mustard
1 teaspoon of chopped parsley
1 teaspoon of grated onion
Be careful to remove any remaining shell while shredding the crab meat. Then, once shredded, mix the crab meat together with the bread crumbs.
Beat the eggs until mixed well, and add your choice of the cream or evaporated milk. Next, add the egg and cream mixture into the crab meat and bread crumbs.
Finally, stir in the rest of the ingredients: salt, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, and chopped parsley, and grated union. Mix well, and adjust the seasonings to taste.
Shape the crab cakes into small patties, then fry in butter. Be sure to brown both sides of the crab cakes by flipping them once.
Perhaps you're looking to make a soup, rather than a main dish. Crab is also useful and delicious for this situation!
(serves 2 or more)
2 hard boiled eggs
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of flour
1 lemon rind (grated)
1 quart of milk
1/2 pound of crab meat
3/4 cup of cooking sherry
1/2 cup of cream
A dash of pepper
Use a fork to mash the hard boiled eggs well. Mix the eggs along with the butter, flour, and lemon rind.
Separately, in a saucepan bring the milk to a boil. Add it slowly to the egg mixture, while stirring constantly. Then, return the entire mix to the saucepan.
Add the crab meat to the mixture in the saucepan, and stir occasionally while letting it simmer for roughly 3 minutes. Finally, bring it to a boil after adding the cooking sherry and cream. Then season the soup to taste with pepper before serving.
