Crab Tarlets Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups white crab meat
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh chives
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon TABASCO┬« Original Sauce
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 4 packages pre-made pastries
  • 2 pieces of fresh chives

Pepper Aioli Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers (from a jar is better)
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Instructions

  1. Combine celery, minced chives, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, egg, and TABASCO┬« sauce in a bowl. Mix well.

  2. Add crab and panko crumbs. Stir gently.

  3. Place pastry puffs on a tray. Fill the puffs with the mixture to the top and place into the oven at 475┬░. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the pastries are browned (they burn easily).

  4. While the crab tartlets are baking, mix 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup chopped red peppers, 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon minced garlic into a small bowl. Mix well.

  5. Serve the crab tartlets warm with a spoon-sized dollop of the pepper aioli on top and two 1/2 inch cut scallions.
