leftover crab

  • s

My eyes were bigger than my stomach last night and I have about 2 cups of cleaned snow crab legs. Any ideas / recipes on what to do with it for dinner for 2 tonight? I've never made crabcakes. That or salad maybe?

  1. How much would you think 2 cups is relative to a pound?

    1. Sounds like the makings of a very fine gumbo!

      1. We made a crab salad (always with imitation crab, but it should work). We dice the crab and add chopped celery and onion and a bit of mayo and there you go. Light, refreshing, and delish!

        1. I like the gumbo idea but how about an omlette with some mushrooms, scallions, cheese and herbs?

          1. A simple way to use it would be to toss it into a vodka sauce over some sort of pasta.
