1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 TBS capers
1 ½ tsp seafood seasoning
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 pound lump crabmeat – drained (ready to eat)
½ cup finely diced red bell pepper
½ cup seeded and finely chopped cucumber
½ cup minced green onion (scallons)
1 TBS butter
¼ cup Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
4 cups salad greens
Combine mayonnaise, capers, Worcestershire, mustard and seafood seasoning in a medium bowl. Fold in crab meat then bell pepper, cucumber and onion.
Meanwhile melt butter in skillet and add Panko and cook stirring frequently over high heat for 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Divide greens evenly on 4 plates, top with crab then sprinkle breadcrumbs over the top.
I already had Italian breadcrumbs so I just used them instead of panko. Also you can use finely chopped onions if you don’t have scallions.
Next time I might use real garlic. I also did not have “seafood seasoning” so I looked up the ingredients and found them all in my pantry so I just made it myself. (Paprika, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, etc)
I also used light Mayo!
