Maryland Crab Roll Ups
“First things first….don’t skimp on the crab meat. After living in the DC area, I’ll readily admit that I’ve become a bit of a crab snob. Living in the land of the perfected crab cake will do that to a person. For this recipe, you’ll need 8 oz. of jumbo lump crab meat. Not “Krab” meat, not the wimpy canned stuff in the tuna aisle. CRAB meat. The good stuff. You can usually find it, refrigerated, near your grocery store’s seafood counter.” Christine
5 large, Burrito sized flour tortillas
1 8 ounces package cream cheese
⅓ cup mayonnaise
⅔ cup finely chopped red pepper
¼ cup finely chopped green onion
⅔ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
8 ounces lump crab meat
With a hand mixer, mix together cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth.
Stir in pepper, green onion, cheddar cheese and Old Bay.
Fold in the crab meat.
Spread a thin layer of the crab mixture onto each tortilla.
Tightly roll the tortillas up and wrap in plastic wrap.
Chill 3 hours or overnight.
Cut into ¾ inch slices.
Sprinkle with more Old Bay, if desired.
