I've got a pound of back fin crab defrosting and am finding myself without inspiration. Yes there cakes and imperial, crepes, none of the above is exciting me. Suggestions?

      Crab salad? It's one of my favorites.

        Crab pasta salad with a good glass of wine and a crunchy loaf of bread
        Or how about this:

          I second the crab bisque, with a nice little pile of crab in the middle floating on a butter crouton.

          Saint Jacques? Bisque? Spring rolls? Po boys? Sui Mai? As a stuffing for ravioli?

            Pizza (with avocado, lemon, fresh herbs and brie - mmm), crab bake, crab quiche?

              Cioppino? I'm thinking about making that for dinner myself.

                What about a crab louis salad? It's a classic for a reason. My mouth waters at the very thought.
