These delicious little morsels are to die for! Creamy cheese and crab with lemon. Doesn't get much better than that!
Great as an appetizer for any social event, but don't wait until then. Make them for yourself and the family, and see for yourself how DELISH they are alone, or with any kind of dipping sauce you might like. I love them with my recipes for Recipe #270395 and Recipe #206003.
Often found at shacks on the beach in Puerto Rico, this full-flavored crab dish is served in the shell, or with rice and green bananas or plantains. A defining element of the dish is sofrito, a traditional Spanish sauce of tomatoes, onions, garlic, bell peppers, cilantro, and hot pepper. Found at epicurious.com
You can cheat and make this with imitation crabmeat but of course the real stuff is better, if you are using frozen crabmeat make certain to squeeze out any excess moisture before using for this recipe --- if you are a spinach lover then add in the full box of spinach if not just use half a box as the spinach tends be over powering, you can use 1 pound fresh spinach in place of frozen --- you can stuff the shells and refrigerate until ready to bake, and this is also great with a red sauce instead of the Parmesan cheese sauce :)
Yummy yummy. Wholesome crab cakes. The only "filler" in this are pureed carrots, chickpeas, scallions, and asparagus. Not much bread-action going on, but plenty of flavor. Cook time accounts for cooking option 1 (skillet). Prep accounts for chopping. RSC4
Nothing is better than a warm grilled cheese on a long cold day. Well now the classical grilled cheese got kicked up 1 more step with the inclusion of crabmeat and blue cheese. Round this dinner out with a warm bowl of clam chowder soup.
We are currently travelling around Australia, following the crab season it seems. One of our favourite ways to eat all these crabs we catch is in crab cakes. Russell has almost perfected them for our tastes-but I tell him he'll just need to practice a bit more ;-)
A healthy and delicious stew which stretches 1/4 pound of chicken and 1/4 pound of crabmeat a long way. Add more hot sauce if you like heat, and add a cup of sliced okra if you like it. Adapted from Bonnie Stern.
A good friend of mine once said that there was nothing like food in Georgia. Boy was he right! This dish was served to me at a very informal "formal" dinner party. The informality was that we all just sat around and ate and talked. The formality was this dish and believe me, it is something I would never hesitate to serve to anyone. I was very glad he wasn't stingy with the recipe because I think I could eat this at least once a week!
This recipe was a "trademark" for a family friend. She recently passed away after a valiant fight with cancer.
I'm saving her recipe here so I won't lose it because it is an oft requested dish at family gatherings.
This is a delicious Singapore classic usually served with chewy crusty french bread or steaming hot white rice. My aunt learned how to make this from a friend who was the head chef of a five star hotel at home. My aunt usually adds a couple spoonfuls of toasted ground peanuts on the final toss in the wok.
Reduce the amount of chillies according to your preference.
This recipe comes from Mary Nell Reck, a local chef and restaurant owner who, sadly, is no longer with us. She also wrote a weekly cooking lesson for The Houston Post, which also no longer exists! This was from that paper on October 4, 1989.The prep work may seem a little lengthy, but it all goes together quickly once you start!
