Florida Seafood Recipe

Deviled Crab

1 cup crushed saltines (24 crackers)
1 pound crab claw meat
6 ounces evaporated milk
2 teaspoons hot sauce
2 tablespoons Wostershire sauce
4 ounces butter, melted
6 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
  salt to taste

Crumble saltines and combine with crab meat in a mixing bowl. Add milk and other ingredients and mix well. You may vary the amount of seasoning to suite taste. Place in six shell ramekins and bake at 325 for 25 to 30 minutes until brown.

6 servings


After placing in shell ramekins, these can be frozen at this point and baked later. To freeze, wrap tightly in freezer foil and place in the freezer. Individual frozen ramekins can be placed directly in the oven from the freezer. Cooking time will increase if baked from the frozen state. You can also thaw in the refrigerator prior to baking.

Look for "Fresh from Florida" ingredients at your grocery store.
