Deviled Crab

Category: Appetizers & Snacks, Fish & Seafood


1 pound deluxe crab meat
2 hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and red pepper (cayenne) to taste
1/4 pound butter
1 tablespoon finely minced onion
1 to 2 cups freshly made bread crumbs
1 teaspoon baking powder


Combine crab meat with chopped eggs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix gently and refrigerate for at least an hour. Meanwhile, melt butter, add onions and saute until softened (but not browned), then stir in bread crumbs, setting aside 1/2 cup. When ready to bake crabs, add the bread crumbs mixture and baking powder to crab meat mixture and toss very lightly--with least possible mixing. Pile gently into crab shells; sprinkle with remaining bread crumbs and bake in moderate oven until golden brown. Serves 6.
