This recipe started out as an indulgent snack in my early fish mongering days. I would take home a tub of crab meat, mix it with lemon, mayo, pepper and consume it with wavy potato chips. Now, I bring you version 2.0!
Serves 4 or 1 very ambitious crab lover
8 oz Jonah combo crab meat
1/8 t. sriracha
4 oz mayo (Duke’s is the preferred brand)
1 large lemon; zest and juice
1 small shallot minced
1 T parsley, minced
Chips – I like a hearty crinkle cut salt and pepper chip, but something fancier will work too
Combine the crab, sriracha, and mayo in a bowl, making sure that there are still some large chunks of crab visible.
Fold in a splash of lemon juice and the zest, then taste for adjustment. The mix may need salt at this point.
Fold in the parsley and let the mix meld in the refrigerator for 30 minutes prior to serving. Serve with chips and enthusiasm.
