Looking for something unusual this weekend and have some time to play with your food? Then the Grilled Stuffed Crab is a perfect item for parties or just lounging around the back yard with something really great!
First, collect the following ingredients:
8 lbs. of whole dungeness crabs
2 cups chopped celery
1 cup shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 seeded and chopped jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs or stuffing mix
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs lemon juice
1 Tbs fresh ground black pepper
Old Bay Seasoning
salt to taste
Boil the crabs according to the directions on the Old Bay seasoning container. Next remove the crab legs and claws from the body of the crab. Clean the body by discarding the soft belly shell and insides. Thoroughly rinse and brush the inside and outside of crab shells; set aside. Crack the claws and legs and remove all meat; transfer crabmeat to bowl; discard leg shells. Add celery, onions, peppers, mayonnaise, and lemon juice to crabmeat. Salt and pepper to taste. Portion the crab mixture into each of the shells. Combine bread crumbs and cheese; sprinkle over crabmeat in shell. Wrap entire shell, leaving vent on top, with heavy-duty foil and place it on medium grill with open side of shell facing up. Cover and cook 15 to 20 minutes. Enjoy!
