Crabmeat Ravigote

Serves 6-8


Prior to mixing the crab meat with the other ingredients make sure that it’s been properly picked, by feeling for shells without crushing the crab meat too much and the meat becomes stringy. The beauty of this dish are the jumbo lumps of crab just held together with the rich and briny sauce ravigote.

Sauce ravigote in classic French terminology means to “refresh” traditionally with a dash of vinegar or lemon juice. In My New Orleans it refers to our slightly tangy dressing that may be used for anything from delicate blue crab meat to a hearty standing rib roast of beef.


3/4 cup mayonnaise

2 heaping tablespoons prepared horseradish

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 green onions, chopped

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

1 dash or two of ground cayenne pepper

Juice of one lemon

1 pound jumbo lump blue crab meat

1 dash Tabasco sauce


In a medium sized mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients together, except for the crabmeat, salt and Tabasco using a wire whisk until smooth and well combined.

Fold in the crabmeat until combined. Add salt and Tabasco to taste.
