  • 1 lb crab meat jumbo lump crab
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 tsp old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt-free lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp parsley fresh
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mayo, mustard, old bay seasoning, egg, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, lemon juice, and salt-free lemon pepper seasoning.
  • Add the crab meat to the mayo mixture and fold gently. Place the crab mixture into a casserole dish and bake for 20 minutes. Broil for 1 minute.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with fresh lemon, if desired. Enjoy!


  • Don't overbake the crab because it can get dry. The crab is already cooked when you purchase it, you just want to warm it up in the oven.
  • Want some crunch? Add crushed Ritz or saltine crackers on top. You can also add shredded cheese on top.
