CRAB IMPERIAL MIX FOR STUFFING
Mix mayonnaise, egg, sugar, old bay, lemon juice and parsley together and blend well, this is your imperial sauce.
Gently fold crabmeat into imperial sauce, being careful not to break up crab meat.
STUFFED LOBSTER TAIL
Spit the tail down the middle and pull the meat out without detaching it
Fold the shell together and lay the meat back on top of the shell. Easy Peasy!
You can fan the tail out to make it look pretty and then add about 2 ounces of the crab imperial to the top of the tail.
Sprinkle with a little old bay and if you’re really feeling decadent drizzle a little melted butter over the top of the crabmeat, then bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Peel and devien shrimp leaving the tail on
split shrimp almost all the way through, then flatten out fanning the tail to the side
top each shrimp with a tablespoon of crabmeat mix.
lb of crabmeat should stuff close to 20 shrimp
bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
use white mushroom caps or baby bellas
pull out stem carefully so as not to break the mushroom cap.
cut a little bit off the bottom of the cap so its will sit flat
place a teaspoon of crabmeat mixture into the mushroom and arrange mushrooms in a large enough baking dish to accomidate all of the mushrooms.
This should make about 40 stuffed mushrooms
add marsala or your favorite wine to the bottom of the dish so the mushrooms have a liquid to soak up while their cooking. You can also use vegetable stock.
bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
