What to do with fresh picked crabmeat?

This past weekend, we found ourselves with about a 1/2 bushel of leftover crabs from a steamed crab feast. It yielded about two pounds of meat, and I made crab cakes.

But, I was looking for inspiration for something else to make the next time this happens - and it will happen again! :)

So, please - what would YOU make with a couple of pounds of crab meat?


I posted the adventure, with photos, on my blog "What I Cook"

  1. Crab dip....mmmmmmmmm. Or seafood lasagna or crab canneloni or pasta with crabmeat.

    1. Crab Rangoon, Crab Avacado Melt Sandwich, Crab Quiche, Crab Stuffed Mushrooms, and my favorite is Crab Salad stuffed in a fresh tomatos

      1. Crab Remoulade: crab meat, remoulade sauce, and shredded iceberg lettuce. Great dish for summer.

        1. Crab Louis with avocado added. This salad really lets the flavor of the crab shine.

          1. WOW - thanks! mmmm crab lasagna, Crab Louis with avocado added, and a Crab Avacado Melt Sandwich just made it to the top of my list.

              I like to make crab salad stuffed into avocado halves. Had it in Mexico and it's so good!
