Crab Salad Bites on Endive


  • 6 ounces lump white crab meat, broken into small pieces with your fingertips

  • 1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped

  • 1 orange, zested

  • 3 radishes, grated

  • 3 tablespoons celery greens, chopped

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

  • 24 endive leaves

  • Chopped parsley or chives, for garnish


Put the crab in a medium bowl. Add the bell pepper, shallot, orange zest, grated radish, celery greens, salt and pepper. Combine the mayonnaise and heavy cream in a small bowl. Add the dressing to the crab and mix well. Using a rounded spoonful, mound the crab salad onto the root end of each endive leaf and fill the leaves half their length. Arrange stuffed endive leaves on a platter and garnish with chopped parsley or chives.
