Crab Lollipop Delight: A Playful Twist on Seafood Perfection

Here's a delightful and unique crab lollipop recipe that you can try. This seafood treat is not only delicious but also a fun twist on traditional crab dishes.


1.     1 pound lump crab meat

2.     1/2 cup breadcrumbs

3.     1/4 cup mayonnaise

4.     1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

5.     2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

6.     1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

7.     1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

8.     1 egg, beaten

9.     Salt and pepper to taste

10. Bamboo skewers


1. Prepare the Crab Mixture:

  • In a large bowl, combine lump crab meat, breadcrumbs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, chopped parsley, Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, beaten egg, salt, and pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly combined.

2. Shape into Lollipops:

  • Take a small portion of the crab mixture and shape it into a round ball. Insert a bamboo skewer into the center, forming a lollipop shape. Repeat with the remaining mixture.

3. Chill the Crab Lollipops:

  • Place the crab lollipops on a tray and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Chilling helps the lollipops hold their shape during cooking.

4. Cook the Crab Lollipops:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the chilled crab lollipops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

5. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Once done, remove the crab lollipops from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, such as aioli or sweet chili sauce.

Q: Can I use canned crab meat? A: While fresh lump crab meat is preferred, you can use high-quality canned crab meat if fresh is not available.

Q: Can I grill the crab lollipops? A: Absolutely! You can grill the crab lollipops for a smoky flavor. Just make sure to oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.
