Easy Crab Shack Recipes Right at Home

Crab RecipesNo matter how you boil, dip, or melt it, crab is one summer treat that you’ve got to have at least once while the weather’s still nice.


Yes, we’ve got a classic crab boil recipe, which is really a one-pot dinner with crayfish, corn on the cob, and potatoes, too. What could be easier? And we do mean “dip,” because one of our recipes is for warm jalapeño crab dip, a sure crowd-pleaser. And we do mean “melt,” too, as in “made with cream cheese” and heated for another perfect appetizer, one that bears no resemblance at all to the honorable tuna melt.


Of course no list of crab dishes would be complete without a recipe for the one-and-only top favorite: good ol’ crab cakes – easy, delicious, and fun to make. And speaking of easy, most of the crab recipes here come together in a jiffy, using either fresh lump crab meat or frozen. One of them has your name on it — a couple of times over.


We’re sure you’ll have nothing to crab about once you whip up a few of these great crab dishes.

    I do not seriously care how or once i get the Letters in the Mail. Every time it arrives, it feels like a letter should be. It’s suddenly there in my mail box 1 day. A nice, tangible surprise. I am for you doing whatever you want when you send it. Mix it up for your folks who help get it sent out. Include crumbs from your lunch. Coffee stains. Whatever. Keep the tedious nature of getting letters out to a minimum by doing whatever you feel like that day. The arrival on the letter and the words of the author inside are what matters. Personally, what I like finest about The Rumpus is that I never ever understand what I’ll go through that day. Or if there isn’t really one that day, maybe it’s because Stephen couldn’t find anything to say or there was much too much going on.
