I made this recipe with fresh crab and it was absolutely phenomenal! Don't be intimidated by the word 'souffle' in the title -- this is the first souffle I have ever made and it turned out beautifully.
This was more of a crab quiche. I did not care for it.
Loved it! I cut the recipe in half & I wasn't sure I had enough crab so I added a can of medium shrimp (rinsed). I also used lime juice instead of lemon. With the exception of the salt, I doubled the spices & increased the coconut a bit. Put it all in a 4 cup souffle & baked for 24 minutes. Hubby suggested that, next time, I bake it in individual dishes for a prettier presentation. I served it w/ baked pineapple slices w/ a brown sugar/butter glaze & a romaine salad w/ walnuts & raspberry vinaigrette. I had a bottle of sauvignon blanc open so that's what we had but because of the spiciness of the dish, I think a gewurztraminer would make a better pairing. Thansk Claire...this was very good!
I made this with imitation crabmeat, used curry sauce instead of powder. No matter - it was absolutely AMAZING and I cannot recommend trying this recipe enough! This was my first souffle, so I was a bit intimidated, but it raised perfectly and was stunning to see and taste. The best recipe I've come across on this site, hands down.
Fabulous! What a great combination of flavors. I brought this to a brunch and everyone asked for the recipe. Well written recipe for those scared to attempt a souffle. Do not change a thing !
The coconut brings out the sweetness of the crab meat, very tasty. It was gone as soon as it hit the table.
From a skeptic point of view,I'd have to say that this recipe was phenomenal. It was a bit messy combining all the ingredients together, but at the end all was forgotten once I savoured the delicious meal. So good that I didn't have to wash the dishes afterwards(LOL)
Absolutely divine! I made this for DH for Valentine's day, along with a wonderful ribeye for a little surf and turf, and it was exceptional! I may add some Old Bay next time, but it was good without it! Thanks for an excellent recipe!
