Deviled Eggs With Crab

I came across a recipe for crab deviled eggs and decided to dip into my stash of canned crab meat (I always stock up when it is on sale) in order to make some. I tweaked the recipe a great deal to make what I think is a far tastier result. I’m going to assume for the sake of brevity that you know how to hard boil eggs and peel them.

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard-boiled and peeled eggs
  • ½ cup of cooked crab meat + 4 tbsp for garnish
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced red onion
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced orange bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced green bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced cornichons
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tbsp of lime juice
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp of dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Helpful Gear:

  • A sharp knife
  • A demitasse spoon

Step 1: Crab Mix

Mix the crab meat with diced onions, diced bell peppers, diced pickles, lime juice, olive oil, dill, and salt/pepper

Step 2: Free the Yolks!

After slicing the eggs in half lengthwise, take a spoon and remove the yolks from the eggs.

Step 3: Yolk Mix

Mash the eggs yolks with the mayonnaise, cumin, and mustard. Salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4: Home Stretch!

Add the yolk mix to the crab mix and stir together until thoroughly blended. Stuff mixture into egg halves and garnish with crab meat and a pinch of dill.

A little Old Bay on top and these are fabulous!

Enjoy!
