From Marsha Dean Phelts' "The American Beach Cookbook". No idea why they are called chops, but this sounds like a delicious dish to impress. Note the 4 hour refrigeration time. Times are a guess-timate.

  3. Squeeze the rest of the lemon juice and the Worcestershire sauce over the claw meat.
  4. Sprinkle seasoning mix over the crabmeat, then add mayonnaise and stir carefully.
