I usually try to keep crab simple, and enjoy the flavor for itself. recently, however, I have discovered that I can buy a pound of crab claw meat for $9.99 at winco, and have been experimenting a little. I win.
I have no pictures but imagine a golden toasty puff pastry empanada, with crispy slivers of parmesan on top, surrounding a rich creamy crab filling.
1 16 oz can crabmeat (good quality)
2 tbsp chive and onion flavored cream cheese
3 tbsp ricotta
2 tbsp butter, melted
2 sheets puff pastry
Parmesan cheese, grated
mix the top five ingrediets well. lay out the puff pastry sheets and cut each one in 4 squares. spoon 2 heaping tablespoons in the middle. fold over into a trangle, pinch the corners together with a fork and cut two slits in the top. sprinkle parmesan on the top. bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, or until puffy and golden.
serve warm or cold.
these are so easy. i made the filling really quickly before i left for school, then baked them up as soon as i got home.
mix the top 4 ingredients
