This must be the most simple Crab Salad Recipe – ever!
It will also work for lobster…
I’ve not bought Maine crab meat since last summer and it’s been on my mind a lot lately…so, on a whim, I stopped by a local fish market just a few miles down the road (open only during the summer months – one must take advantage of the few places open this time of year!!) and picked up an 8 oz. package of local crab meat.
Drove straight home and began dicing.
A few minutes later I was in heaven.
Fresh crab salad on a bed of crisp local greens – my lettuce never did make it…yet, that is…once cooler weather approaches, I will plant again…fingers crossed.
Anyway, if you like crab meat, have the ability to buy it – fresh – then do try this recipe.
8 oz. Crab meat
One Celery Stalk
Quarter of a Shallot
Juice from one lemon
Find yourself some super fresh crab meat. Not in a tin.
8 ounces is just fine.
Flake into a medium sized bowl.
Finely dice celery stalk and shallot.
Add to crab meat.
Add pinch of corse salt,
and a couple of turns on a pepper grinder…
Add juice from half a lemon.
Then add one small spoonful of mayonnaise and mix.
and adjust to liking – perhaps more lemon juice, salt or pepper?
Maybe it’s just perfect…
Serve between two slices of soft bread and fresh lettuce leaves or on a bed of greens with crackers served on the side…or enjoy by the spoonful…
No matter what – just enjoy!
