Eastern Shore Seafood Salad Recipe

We live just a short distance from the Chesapeake Bay area, so crabmeat dishes are very popular here. This is a new recipe I came across that I think is extra special.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound cooked medium shrimp
  • 3 cups cooked or canned crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons seafood seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Leaf lettuce, optional
  • 1 hard-cooked egg, sliced, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine shrimp, crab, onion and celery. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, seafood seasoning, lemon juice, salt and pepper; add to the shrimp mixture and mix gently.
  • 2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. If desired, serve in a lettuce-lined bowl and garnish with egg. Yield: 6 servings.
