Spicy Crab Dip

Here is a crab dip that will have your dinner guest begging for the recipe!

1 lb fresh crab meat, drained & flaked
1/4 cup minced red pepper
1 tsp old bay seasoning
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup scallion, thinly sliced
1-2 Tbs Jalapeno pepper, minced
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
4 oz whipped cream cheese
1 1/2 Tbs fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp Tabasco
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1/2 cup fresh corn (optional)
four ramekins 6 oz each

Preheat the oven to 425°. Place the crab meat in a medium bowl and add the bell pepper, scallions, parsley, corn, and jalapeno. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the mayonnaise, cream cheese, lemon juice, Old Bay, and hot sauce until it’s combined well. In a small bowl, combine the panko, cheddar cheese, and lemon zest. Add the crab mixture into each ramekin evenly and sprinkle the panko/cheese mixture on top. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until the panko is toasty brown and the dip is bubbling at the edges. Serve hot with crusty French bread or breadsticks. Bon Appetit!
