Crabmeat in Garlic Cream Sauce
Updated: Jan 4
This is a play on Crabmeat aú Gratin. The big difference here is the lack of cheese in the sauce. This is a great example of Creole-Italian cuisine.
1 pound Lump Crabmeat
2 tablespoons minced Flat-Leaf Parsley
6 Green Onions, chopped
4 large Garlic Cloves, minced
2/3 cup Sour Cream
3 tablespoons dry White Wine
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
1 cup Italian-seasoned Breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using your fingertips, carefully pick through crabmeat; remove and discard any bits of shell or cartilage. In a medium bowl, combine crabmeat, parsley, green onions. and garlic; set aside. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, wine, salt, and pepper. Gently fold cream mixture into crabmeat mixture; do not break up lumps of crabmeat. Divide crabmeat mixture amoung 4 1-cup aú gratin dishes. In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs and cheese with a fork. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over top of each dish. Bake in preheated oven until golden and bubbly, 20 minutes.
