Helllloooo!!! So I was thinking and I need to step my seafood game up on the site and so I decided to give Urban Pl8’s Crab Remick a try. I took this one off the 2 person meal plan so it only made 2 portions. It seemed that it wouldn’t take long…so I snuck it in while another recipe was cooking. Real crab is pretty expensive to buy so I wouldn’t make this on a regular occasion unless you are big ballin’ and that is not me!
This is what you need for this recipe:
1/2 pound of lump crabmeat…the real stuff not the fake stuff
a lemon to squeeze some lemon juice
4 pieces of cooked bacon, broken up into little pieces ****
1/4 cup diced green onions
a little olive oil
For the Remick sauce:
1/4 cup mayo- I used Primal Mayo that you can get for a great price at Thrive Market! Click on the sidebar and sign up!
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon whole grained mustard
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
a dash or 2 of Kosher salt
****This recipe calls for bacon…I didn’t have any already cooked up and I didn’t want to take the extra time to do so (I can be totally lazy) but I was short on time and I had some left over Anduoille sausage from the Paleo Jambalaya and I so I subbed that instead.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix up all of the ingredients for the Remick sauce and set aside.
- Get out the crab meat and make sure there aren’t any left over shells. Get a small baking dish and lightly oil the bottom of the dish.
- Transfer the crab meat into the small baking dish and juice a lemon over the top of the crab meat. Bake the crab meat for about 8 minutes. Remove the crab meat from the oven and add in the bacon or sausage in this case.
- Pour the sauce over the top of the sausage/bacon. Set the oven to broil and but the baking dish back in the oven. Cook until the sauce begins to bubble.
- Remove from the oven and sprinkle the green onions over the top.
Again this only makes 2 portions! This is a small baking dish so don’t let the picture fool you into thinking it is more than what it is.
Over all this is pretty tasty, but not something I would make on a regular. It would end up being way to pricey to make unless you have a good hook up on a crab dealer. It would good on its own but it seemed like maybe it needed something else on the side…I dunno…So maybe smaller portions with some other veggie to mix it up a bit. That would be my recommendation anyways.

A very tasty dish that is pretty rich. I really liked it. It is not something I would make everyday, since real crab meat is pricey. But every now and again it would be nice to make such a tasty treat.
You can sub out the bacon for sausage as I did.
