How to Make Crab Rockefeller


  1. In a frying pan over medium-high heat melt butter and sauté celery, green onions and parsley until just tender, 3-5 minutes
  2. Reduce to medium-low, stir in Worcestershire and Tobasco cooking for about 10 minutes to blend flavors.
  3. Add liqueur and bread crumbs and cook for 5 minutes longer to blend.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper, transfer to bowl and refrigerate until set but not hard, approximately 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 shallow remekins or small baking dishes and divide the crabmeat among them reserving 6 of the largest pieces for garnish.
  6. Remove sauce from refrigerator. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat sauce until it is lighter in texture and aerated, about 2 minutes.
  7. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons of sauce over crabmeat and garnish each with piece of crabmeat.
