I have a nice quick appetizer recipe for you guys. This is perfect for dinner parties or just a special family dinner. If you love crabs like I do, you will love this quick and easy dish. You don’t need many ingredients, but the taste is amazing.
1 lb crab claws
1 tablespoon shallots minced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
salt and pepper to taste (generous pepper)
1 tablespoon parsley for garnish
Rinse crab claws in a large bowl and add salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet on medium/low heat. Mix shallots, garlic, sherry vinegar and mustard in a food processor. Add a little oil to this mixture. Add crabs to the skillet and cook for about 5 minutes and add shallot mixture to crabs. Make sure you toss well, so every claw can taste the sauce.
You can slice a few pieces of French bread and place in a blow. Top with crab claws and sauce, then sprinkle with parsley.
I love making these. I actually had them with my grilled shrimp salad. It was a lite night.
