Introduction: Deviled Eggs With Crab

Picture of Deviled Eggs With Crab

I came across a recipe for crab deviled eggs and decided to dip into my stash of canned crab meat (I always stock up when it is on sale) in order to make some. I tweaked the recipe a great deal to make what I think is a far tastier result. I'm going to assume for the sake of brevity that you know how to hard boil eggs and peel them.


  • 6 hard-boiled and peeled eggs
  • ½ cup of cooked crab meat + 4 tbsp for garnish
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced red onion
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced red bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced orange bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced green bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp of finely diced pickles (I used cornichons)
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tbsp of lime juice
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp of dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
