  • 1 pound lump crabmeat, picked over for shells and cartilage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup pickled jalapeño, chopped
  • 1/4 pound Monterey jack cheese, with jalapeños, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Emeril's hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the crabmeat, garlic, jalapeños, Monterey Jack cheese, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt and mayonnaise in a medium-size mixing bowl. Toss gently to mix. Spoon the mixture into a medium-size shallow baking dish. Sprinkle the Parmigiano-Reggiano evenly on the top of the crabmeat mixture.

    Bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly. Let sit for about 5 minutes before serving with chips, crackers, crudite or croutons.
