FOOD FUN: Stuffed Crab Legs

This isn’t primarily a recipe for stuffed crab legs, but a tip that many things we often discard still have a place on the plate.

Here, the creative chefs at Petrossian made a crab salad with fresh whole crab. Instead of discarding the empty crab legs, they stuffed them and arranged them on the plate: a clever, fun presentation.

Petrossian stuffed the legs with more crab, a quail egg and caviar and served them with a stripe of aïoli (garlic mayonnaise). But you can stuff them with anything, including:

  • Chopped salad
  • Mashed potatoes of “crab mashed potatoes” with some crab mixed in
  • Rice salad
  • Savory custard, simulating bone marrow
  •

  • Seasoned, cooked ground beef—an unusual “surf and turf”
  •  

    Garnish the tops with:

  • Caviar or other roe
  • Crumbled bacon
  • Olive or sweet gherkin slices
  •
