Recipe

Robinson Cove, named for my husband’s family, is on the west side of Isle au Haut. When Jim was a boy he spent all of his summers at the old family homestead in the cove with his parents, sister, and three brothers. Mattie, Jim’s mother, often made this simple and utterly delicious crab spread. I like it because it really showcases our sweet local crabmeat.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings as an hors d’oeuvre

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces fresh crabmeat, picked over
  • ¾ cup regular or reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup snipped chives (see note)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Assorted delicate crackers or small slices of bread

Directions

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the crabmeat with the mayonnaise, chives, lemon juice, and horseradish. Mix well with a large fork to break up any larger chunks of crabmeat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate for up to 6 hours.

Serve in a bowl surrounded by crackers.

Notes

If chives are unavailable, substitute finely chopped scallion.
