Ingredients (11)

  • 5 oz of fresh shrimp diced fine (canned will work, but fresh is much better)
  • 1 teaspoon of butter to saute shrimp
  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 2 oz of lump or claw crab meat (canned is fine)
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon, just a few drops of worcestershire
  • Hot sauce to taste, just a few drops
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 scallions chopped well, green parts only

This is a quick and easy appetizer. Make it ahead and then spread on lightly toasted baguettes and top with fresh crab and scallions. It is easy and quick.

This is great as an appetizer, or as a side dish to a great steak or lamb dinner or just about anything. Even a late night snack or a simple lunch.

  2. 2Remove shrimp, cool and chop additionally if needed. You want a fine chop.
  3. 3In a bowl mix the shrimp with the cream cheese, brandy, worcestershire, hot sauce, s/p and fresh dill and mix will. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for several hours.
  4. 4Chop your crab meat and the scallions and set to the side.
  5. 5Toast the baguettes with a little olive oil until slightly brown and top with the chilled shrimp mixture and top with a small spoon of crab and scallions as a garnish.
