Maryland Crab Imperial in a Scallop Shell
I have been eating Crab Imperial since I was a kid. It’s a family favorite. My grandmother Edna said the secret is to generously coat the crabmeat with a little more mayonnaise than you would think. The mayonnaise melts in the oven creating a real buttery flavor that pairs perfectly with Maryland crabmeat. I like to serve Crab Imperial on top of a scallop shell but you can also use a crab shell mold, or a real shell, which is cute.
This recipe is just as delicious prepared in a baking dish and then scooped out like dip and served on fresh crusty bread.
