ingredients

directions

  • Arrange around the rim of a bowl some whole lettuce leaves.
  • Place in the center of the bowl about 1/2 cup shredded lettuce leaves.
  • Combine ingredients 1-9 in a bowl to make the Crab Louis sauce. Chill it if you have time for a few hours -- It will be better.
  • Add enough sauce to crab meat until crab is well coated but not runny and toss thoroughly. (you might not use all of the sauce).
  • Assemble into bowls and garnish with chopped eggs.
  • best if chilled but sometimes I can't wait.

    Yum! I made two versions of this recipe. One exactly as written (but I had to use can crab meat, its hard to find fresh ones in my area). I also tweaked the recipe and substituted the cream to coconut cream to make it OK for me to eat and used prawns/shrimp. I also omitted the boiled egg. This dressing could be used not only as crab salad but a seafood salad. Its so good! Thank you Potsie for posting your recipe.

    Bliss... I made this into lettuce wraps, with the exact ingredients. Very Yum!

    Hmmm. Well, I think I sinned...I used pollock...but overall it was fine. Pretty tangy. Not sure it is something I will love. BUT, I thought I would use so much more crab. So, next time, I think I will buy real crab. The sauce was nearly double what I needed. So, I'll buy a smaller amount of crab and make 1/2 the sauce. I want to try it again. For now, i'm going to chop it really fine and eat it on a bagel! thanks for sharing!
