Crab Backs

Staff | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 8 people

This snack is a favorite at Deyna’s Tasty Foods, a locals’ favorite in St. George’s. It’s best made with fresh crab shells, though 4-ounce ramekins work fine.

  1. If using crab shells, prepare by soaking 30 minutes in vinegar. Rinse, boil for about 5 minutes, and allow to dry.
  2. Preheat oven to 350º. Sauté crabmeat, onion, garlic, herbs, and seasoning pepper in butter for 5–10 minutes, stirring. Add bread crumbs and stir gently. Salt to taste, then stuff into shells or ramekins.
  3. Bake 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh pepper and parsley.
