Maryland Crab Meat Au Gratin


1-1/2 pounds backfin crab meat

1 cup breadcrumbs

3 tablespoons melted butter

Curry Sauce:

3 cups milk

4 tablespoons butter

pinch of curry powder

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

dash of Angostura bitters


Prepare the Curry Sauce. Scald milk in a medium saucepan, keep warm. Heat butter and curry powder in a large, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat until curry is fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Do not boil or curry will burn.

Add flour and stir for 3 minutes. Slowly blend in hot milk. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and Angostura bitters. Increase heat and bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preheat broiler. Butter six small gratin dishes. Combine crab meat and Curry Sauce. Divide among prepared dishes.

Combine breadcrumbs and melted butter in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the crab meat and broil until crumbs are golden brown.

Serves 6.
