Alabama Deviled Crab

Deviled crab is one of those classic recipes that never really gets old; a similar dish with clams is common in New England. The original concept is seasoned seafood, mixed with mustard and breadcrumbs, stuffed back into its shell and baked. I use a casserole dish or individual ramekins. This recipe is Spanish-inspired, with a little sherry for flavor.
