One of my favorites is "stuffed" flounder. I make them in individual oval casseroles. One small flounder fillet on the bottom, crabmeat stuffing in the middle, & another small flounder fillet on top. Delicious.

Hi luvs, can put it in a gumbo, make a bisque or soup with it (generally would use the shells to make a stock though), an omelet or frittata, a quiche, or in a chocolate cake. OK, OK forget the last one, I just got carried away. I love crab.

Back in the day when we were raising 5 children, 4 of whom were boys (read that to equal "food vacuums"), this casserole was everyone's favorite. It gave us the taste of crab without breaking the bank. You might like it, too.

POOR MAN’S CRAB CASSEROLE
(Serves 4)

1 (16-oz.) pkg. frozen cod fillets, not breaded, thawed and drained

Crab mixture:
2/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup crushed herb seasoned stuffing mix, such as Pepperidge Farms
1 (6-oz.) pkg. frozen crab meat, thawed and drained
1 (4-oz.) can mushrooms stems and pieces, drained
1 egg
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
¼ tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. hot pepper sauce

Topping:
½ cup crushed herb seasoned stuffing mix, such as Pepperidge Farms
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

In ungreased 8-inch square baking dish place cod fillets. In a 1½-quart bowl, mix together all crab mixture ingredients. Sprinkle crab mixture over cod fillets. In same bowl, combine all topping ingredients; sprinkle over crab mixture. Bake in preheated 350º oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until heated through and fish flakes with a fork.

Crab etouffee? When you pay for your crab you may decide on just one at a time.
I think the shining way to use crab is crab cakes. And with as LITTLE filler as is possible and still get them to hold together. We rarely venture beyond cakes, except at Thanksgiving I served crab stuffed mushrooms.
