25 Yummy Crab Meat Recipes

1. Crabmeat Enchiladas

Eating crabmeat enchiladas might seem a little strange, but in reality, this dish is gorgeous and delicious.

Crabmeat doesn’t really have the same texture as ground beef.

 It has a much more crisp and jagged bite that we all know and love.

However, you still get all those delicious flavors when you make this recipe with crab meat.

The sauce is made of cream of chicken soup, garlic powder, oregano, chopped onion, bell peppers, cilantro, salt and pepper (to taste), and butter.

It’s rich and herbaceous but not overwhelmingly so.

 It’s just right for this scrumptious treat!

2. Crab Rangoon (Crab & Cream Cheese Filled Wontons)

Crab rangoon is just what you need on a hot summer day.

Crunchy, juicy crab and chewy wontons are filled with creamy crab and cheese.

They’re made even more special by the lovely sweet garlic sauce in the center of each one.

They’re best served with steamed rice to enjoy them as light snacks or meal options during a busy weeknight lunch time.

3. Crab Pasta Salad

Crab salad is a delicious appetizer that’s perfect for serving at your next summer party.

You won’t be able to stop at one bowl!

5. Crab Macaroni And Cheese

If you prefer your mac and cheese a little bit sweeter, try adding some brown sugar or honey to the mix.

It’s also worth reading through this list of suggested cheeses.

For example, sharp cheddar pairs well with sweet potatoes and salty bacon.

6. Crab Bisque

This crab bisque will warm your belly and your heart.

 It’s creamy, rich, and full of succulent crabmeat.

The secret to this creamy bisque? Coconut milk.

It adds a delicate sweetness that balances the richness of the sauce.

Citrus adds a freshness that ties together the flavors of this dish perfectly.

7. Maryland Style Crab Imperial

This Maryland-style crab imperial is just what you need for a party that’s going to get messy.

It’s a simple dish of crab meat, butter, and Worcestershire sauce.

 But the secret ingredient comes in the form of Old Bay.

That ingredient adds a salty, umami flavor to the mix that makes this dish so delicious.

The jumbo lump crabmeat gives it plenty of texture and make it extra-loaded with protein.

Add some hot sauce and parsley to your bowl, then serve it up with cornichons and french fries.


8. Linguini With Crab

This pasta is the perfect way to start your week.

 It’s a light meal that packs in the protein and fiber of crab.

The linguini is coated with a creamy, buttery sauce made from cream, shallots, and garlic.

Top it with a generous amount of crab meat for an extra dose of flavor!

This dish is quick and easy to make, but that doesn’t mean it can’t give you the satisfaction of being masterful at cooking.


9. Easy Crab Cakes

Crab cakes are a little different from the usual breakfast food we all love.

They’re actually made using crab meat and liquid, and they’re fried to golden perfection.

 They add heat but also some citrus flavor.

10. Quick And Easy Crab Pasta

Quick and easy crab pasta is the perfect weeknight meal.

 It’s nutritious, delicious, and ready in under 30 minutes.

Every bite will quench your hunger with a flavor explosion!

11. Hot Crab Dip

It takes a few hours to make, but it has the most amazing flavor.

I can’t even explain how good it is.

Maryland lump crab cakes are perfect for a summer BBQ or any special occasion.

Grilled cheese is a simple dish.

 The bread is toasted and cut into triangles, and the cheese goes on top.

The secret to this grilled cheese lies in the tomatoes that are smothered with bacon and crab meat.

The grill lets the tomatoes infuse some of their natural sweetness while turning them into an even more flavorful topping.

A quick bite of this grilled cheese will make you feel like you’re on vacation!

16. Open Faced Crab Sandwiches

If you love a good crab cake, then you’ll love these crab sandwiches.

They’re packed with tender white meat and plenty of veggies.

It gives the meat so much flavor and makes it extra juicy.

Serve them up with some sweet relish on the side, and they’ll disappear fast!

The crust on this quiche is just as flaky and buttery as the crust from the sourdough casserole above.

If you’re new to making your own crust, don’t fret!

It’s much easier than you think.

Just make sure to let it rest for 15 minutes before turning over the edges of your pie dish.

This will give you that beautiful golden brown edge without any extra work.

21. Crab Cake Burgers

These crab cakes are bursting with flavor, and that’s not just because of the crab meat.

The breading is made with flour, egg, butter, and seasonings to create a delicious crust.

But what makes these such an exceptional appetizer is the sauce.

 It’s not just sweet, but it also has ketchup (which adds a wonderful tangy kick).

Put them on a bun and top them with lettuce or other vegetables.
