Recipe by Chef John
"These muffins remind me of a New England crab or lobster roll, where they simply pile warm, buttery seafood on those toasted rolls. These would make a great game day party snack."

DO NOT USE CANNED CRAB!!!
I used canned crab and it was horrid, I used that expensive refrigerated "real" claw crab meat... expensive too. Yeah it was bad, like absolutely horrible, crab was not expired or anything it was just bad! I followed recipe to a tee and it was just bad.
If you cant find or afford REAL crab, use some of the imitation crab and add some cream cheese to the mixture. Also I recommend adding a little sugar, maybe a tablespoon or so to the corn mixture... it's too dull and boring if you use the imitation crab, if you use real fresh crab, let the crab be the star. Otherwise... don't do it.
I made these this weekend for my daughter's babyshower. Everybody loved
them. I followed the recipe exactly and they were wonderful. Towards the end of making them I had extra crab filling (just because I'm bad
about measuring "exact" amounts) so my last few muffins had an extra tsp. or so of filling and it didnt make a difference in the baking process and I liked those ones the best. delish! thank you Chef John
This is my favorite recipe. It is very important to use fresh crab meat in this recipe. I love spicy dishes so I added extra chopped red chillis to the mix. In addition to spring onions, I also added chopped corriander. Thank you for this delicioius dish Chef John!
These were good, but a bit on the bland side. The filling was really good, but I think that the corn muffin part needed more salt/flavor. These were really easy to make and I do like the idea, so I will play around w/ them. Thanks for sharing. :)
I loved the basic idea for these but they just didn't have much flavor. The corn muffin was just over powering on what little flavor they did have. Great idea but it needs some tweaking to be as good as it sounded.
