Stuffed in mushrooms (big morels, baby bellas, or portabellas) and baked. I use a basic crab cake mixture.

Thanks folks! Don't be affraid to combine recipes to create something new. The Leek flans called for bacon, that would have been way to over powering for the crab,IMO. We subbed a little garlic instead. The clean flavor of the crab came through! Hey, if it would have been a fail, it would have been a learning experience. If you're not gonna play with your food, why are you in the game?

Presentation is important too. Like your pic/presentation. Another way to go is timbales, i.e. crab, avocado (& tomatoes) topped with microgreens.

Here in Canada, this drink is known as a Caesar. But Clamato Juice is used in place of tomato juice. I'm proud to say this drink was invented in my hometown of Calgary, Alberta

This is why I find crab meat an excellent companion to eggs. I like to lightly fry the crab meat in oil and garlic, then add the milk and eggs. Can't go wrong!

Couldn't agree more. My parents always told me not to play with my food, but I never listened ;)

You made a fine choice with that crab meat. A very unique dish for sure! It presents wonderfully and I'm sure it tasted heavenly.

Are any of these recipes suitable for canned crab meat? I have a can I've had for 1-2 years, don't know why I bought it, would like to use it in some worthwhile recipe...

I've used canned crab meat in many recipes and never been let down. I actually prefer canned crab for dips and pastas.

Though I prefer fresh, you have to have patience to pick crab without eating it and drinking beer! I've used canned/packaged crab, but it was refrigerated at the store and had an expiration date.
