A major difference between our recipe and Emeril's original recipe is the crab meat. Where Emeril uses fresh crab, we use imitation crab. The last time Stephen ate fresh crab meat he had an allergic reaction so we have tried to avoid it ever since.
1 pound of fresh or imitation crab
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped pickled jalapenos, grated (*We actually use 1/4 cup of the juice from a jar of jalapenos and just a few chopped pieces)
1/4 pound pepper jack cheese, grated
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp hot sauce (we use Tobasco)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (*We use Parmigiano-Reggiano)
What you need to do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If you are using imitation crab you will need to separate or chop the meat into smaller chunks. To save time and dishes mix all your ingredients in a small casserole dish. We used a 9x9.
