Old Town Deviled Crab

Recipe from: The Crab Place
Servings: 6

There are times when deviled crab can be the most wonderful food on Earth. They make a lovely brunch dish with a light champagne or a fine evening meal with a lightly chilled Alsatian Riesling.

5 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced parsley
1 pound backfin crab meat
½ cup soft bread crumbs

Make a white sauce with 3 tablespoons of the butter, flour, mustard and milk; stir in lemon juice and parsley. Fold in crab. Spoon into six ceramic crab shells or similar utensils. Mix bread crumbs with remaining 2 tablespoons butter (melted) and sprinkle over crab mixture. Before serving, bake in a preheated 400°F oven until hot and topping is lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
