Julie's Deviled Seafood

September 20, 2012

Author Notes:

This seafood casserole was one my mom would make for Christmas, as part of a buffet and for company during the year. I believe it was an adaptation of James Beard's Deviled Crab recipe. It's very, very rich and very retro but oh so good! Mom used lobster meat in this but feel free to use more reasonably priced langoustines in its place.


Makes: 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, finely minced
  • 1 cup finely sliced green onion
  • 16 ounces king or lump crabmeat, well picked over( mom really liked king)
  • 16 ounces cooked lobster meat or langoustines, chopped
  • 16 ounces cooked shrimp (preferably wild Gulf), chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
  • 2 1/2 cups coarsely crushed saltines
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
  • Tabasco sauce to taste

Yum! Have you thought about switching out the saltines for panko?
