Dungeness CrabMeat Quiche

After a long day at work and it was a Friday, I made a Dungeness Crabmeat Quiche.  You might think big deal but I picked that crabmeat earlier at work.  If you have ever picked crabmeat it takes time. And for us Saturday is a working day.  We usually don’t join the “Friday Happy Hour” Scene at the local pub since we have to get up early.   Remember the early worm catches that delicious seafood!

This is a tried and true recipe.  You might add a little more Old Bay Seasoning or Tabasco if you are looking for an added kick.  It was delicious.  Good thing I doubled the recipe and made 2 quiches since people were coming back for seconds and thirds!

Deviled Crab Meat

Deviled Crab Meat was Nonno Tom’s favorite seafood meals. He enjoyed eating!   Nonno Tom (Tom Lazio) would unload the harvest from the local San Francisco crab boats.  He’d give the orders to his men to cook up some of the fresh catch.  Next, either he would pick the crab himself or have one of his employees pick the meat out of the body and legs of those fresh Dungeness Crabs.  He’d bring home fresh Dungeness Crab Meat for my grandmother to make just one of his special seafood dishes – Deviled Crab Meat.  Before he could make walk into the house he’d have to change his clothes outside, put them directly into the washing machine, and head to his bathroom for a shower.  The Deviled Crab Meat didn’t take long so by the time he was freshly showered smelling of soap and Lilac Vegetable After Shave dinner was ready.

I whipped up a very large batch of the Deviled Crab Meat for an Crab Fest event at Macy’s Union Square.  I showed everyone how to crack the crab showing them my secret for getting the most meat out of.  I also shared this delicious recipe.  Everyone enjoyed their taste of the Deviled Crab Meat!
