How to make it

  • Red Pepper Dressing:
  • Place the peppers in the bowl of a food processor and season with salt and pepper
  • Add the lemon juice and Tabasco, then put the lid in place and turn on the processor
  • Stream in the olive oil and process until smooth and set aside
  • For Crab Melts:
  • Preheat the broiler
  • Using your fingers, check the crabmeat for pieces of shell
  • In a medium bowl, combine the crab and Old Bay and mix lightly to combine
  • Add the celery, tarragon and scallions to the crab and toss with the red pepper dressing and adjust the seasoning to taste
  • Toast the English muffins under the hot broiler, then lightly butter them
  • Top each with a small handful of watercress, then with a scoop of the crab salad
  • Pat down the salad a bit, then top with a handful of cheese and return to the broiler to melt the cheese, about 1 to 2 minutes
  • Remove and serve immediately!
  • Note: You can also use a long loaf of a coarse bread (such as Ciabatta) and make 1 large melt and cut into slices for a party or appetizer bar (just double the recipe)

    You're making me very hungry today, m'dear. Great recipe and there's something about warm crabby-cheesy things that make the heart melt and the tummy go *yummm*. And your family sings your praises and throws roses at your feet.

    Well...kinda...hehehe...

    Thank you!
