Maryland blue crab is likely Maryland’s favorite food. Its scientific name, Callinectes sapidus, literally means “delicious, beautiful swimmer.” One of people’s favorite ways to enjoy blue crab is to stuff it in other ingredients. Below is a sampling of four delicious crab-stuffed recipes that you might try yourself.
For starters, crab-stuffed pretzels are an easy recipe to conjure together. You don’t need to go to the pub to have a taste! Soft pretzels and crab dip are easy to make and easy to purchase. One combo is to try out Eastern Shore Crab Cakes’ amazing crab dip paired with homemade soft pretzels. Soft pretzels mainly consist of flour, water, yeast, sugar, and salt. Tie the ends of a dough circle and press it down the middle to create a classic pretzel. Warm up Eastern Shore CC’s crab dip (purchase online) in the oven after spreading it on top of your baked pretzels and serve.
Eastern Shore Crab Cakes offers quality crab cake mix, which they pre-season to perfection. If you are hosting dinner or a party, this is your best option for adding superb crabmeat to divine dishes. Crab-stuffed mushrooms are a popular menu item, consisting of mushroom caps, crab meat mix, some finely chopped onions and chives, and parmesan cheese on top. White button, cremini, and portobello mushrooms are your best options for stuffing.
Crab-stuffed salmon is perhaps not the first crab-stuffing recipe you might imagine, but it is one that is tried and true. Depending on your culinary sensibilities, you can season your fresh salmon as much or little as you please. Cut a slit through the middle of the salmon without cutting all the way through the meat (or else the crab stuffing will fall through.) Load on your crab mix down the middle and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Blue crab is such a versatile specimen that it can go well in bell peppers too. You can combine your crab mix with sausage, prosciutto, or goat cheese, drizzle it with olive oil, and cut your peppers longways or width-ways. To add a little more moisture, you could add some mayo or opt to use Eastern Shore Crab Cakes’ crab dip instead. Marylanders never bake their crabs with breadcrumbs, but if you want to try crab from another perspective, feel free to explore!
