Hot Jalapeno Crab Dip

  • 1 pound lump crabmeat, picked over for shells and cartilage
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • ½ cup chopped pickled jalapenos
  • ¼ pound Monterey Jack cheese with jalapenos, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup Mayonnaise
  • 3 ounces Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated

Combine the crabmeat, garlic, jalapenos, Monterey Jack, Worcestershire, hot sauce, salt, and mayonnaise in a medium-size mixing bowl. Toss gently to mix taking care not to break up the lumps of crab. Spoon the mixture into a medium-size shallow baking dish. Sprinkle the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese evenly on the top of the crabmeat mixture.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve with crusty bread.
