A very simple yet cream-less, unique, smooth and creamy corn and leek bisque thickened with rice. Save the crab for the garnish, Sometimes the best use of our crab is to finish the dish, like with this soup, which could easily be exchanged with a premade soup from your favorite brand. Let the crab meat shine and let your guests not only taste the crab but also see it!
One of my favorite crab dishes is crab and corn risotto, except instead of shallots or onions I like to use leeks, their sweet and delicate flavor works extremely well with both the crab meat and the corn. A simple drizzle of some store bought pesto adds a pop of color and flavor. This recipe is to make the risotto, however, if you allow to cool and then cut into portion and sauté crisp on the surface just before serving. I also dust some julienned leeks and dust with a little seasoned flour and fried crisp for some added texture.
Our delicious crab meat is given some Latin flavor in this light and refreshing recipe.
Crab cakes seem to be on almost every menu. One of the recent trends is small, crispy, shareable crab cake bites. We took that idea with our classic crab cake recipe and add a crunchy crust of crushed pretzel crumbs and paired it with a warm beer-cheese dipping sauce.
Crab fries these are definitely one of the hot menu items of the moment. Some have actual crab, some just the essence of crab (like some Old Bay seasoning). Well I learned years ago at my restaurant, Taste, that when the menu says “crab fries” people are expecting some crab meat (otherwise call them Old Bay fries, IMO). Well these are fully loaded with crab, an IPA spiked beer-cheese sauce, some chorizo and some extra Cheddar and scallions for good measure.
Melty cheese and crab in a toasted tortilla. The crab and chorizo quesadilla has it all and is really quite simple to make.
Hot Crab! Hot Crab! Hot crab dip anyone?
Something about these piquant little peppers that just cries out for a creamy crab filling. Add some chorizo to keep the theme going and we have another new recipe.
Crab cakes, everyone seems to have their own secret recipe, well here is a unique one for you. Crab and chorizo in a cake together, a match made in, well, not Maryland.
