Deviled Crab

Deviled Crab (Level 1)

We had surf & turf for dinner last nite, it's always easy! Just grilled up some steaks, made deviled crab and a salad. I was going to make crab cakes, but decided on this as the lazy way instead.

Deviled Crab (Level 1)

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced green pepper
1/4 cup minced celery
1/2 pound lump crab meat, flaked
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 cup scallion greens sliced thin
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped pimento
pinch cayenne to taste
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon butter, melted

Set oven rack to top 1/3 of your oven. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly spray two 1 cup ramekins with Pam.

Melt the 1 1/2 tablespoons butter over medium low heat in a heavy skillet. Add the onion, bell pepper and celery and cook, stirring often, until they are softened. Stir in the crab meat, mayonnaise, scallion greens, parmesan cheese, worcestershire sauce, parsley, pimento and cayenne. Remove from heat and divide the mixture between the 2 ramekins.

Sprinkle the 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese over the tops of the crab mixture, then drizzle with the melted butter.

Place the ramekins on the rack of a broiler pan and cook on top rack for 10 minutes.

Serve and enjoy! Just make sure you warn your dining partner that the ramekin is HOT.
