In my area, we are fortunate to be able to get fresh crab meat in abundance. However, Hubby uses imitation crab for this dish because it’s perfect for rigging it. Yes, this is Hubby’s recipe and I made it for the first time this past weekend. We use flake style imitation crab meat from Sam’s Club. Because it has no flavor, we have to spice it up.
1.5 lbs fully cooked, ready-to-eat, flake style Imitation Crab Meat
2 jalapenos, ribbed and seeded
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
1 tbsp light mayonnaise
Zest and juice of 2 limes
Salt and pepper to taste
Chop larger pieces of crab meat in half, combine all ingredients. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour. Serve cold.
