Our deviled crab recipe has been provided by The Crab Place where you can order a large variety of lived, steamed, and prepared crabs.

A few herbs in the crumb topping for this dish add a speedy and flavorful touch to the crab. Broccoli and a fruity salad would be nice meal accompaniments to the deviled crab.
