Florida Seafood Recipe

Bedeviled Blues Blue Crab

    (Photo below)
8 medium soft-shell crabs
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup fresh celery, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttery cracker crumbs
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Rinse crabs under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Cook onion, celery, green pepper and garlic in margarine until tender. In a medium bowl, combine mixture with the next 8 ingredients. Place soft crabs in a shallow, lightly oiled baking dish. Remove top shell from crabs and fill each cavity with 1 tablespoon stuffing mixture. Replace top shell. Brush crabs with remaining melted margarine. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until shells turn red and crabs brown slightly.
