Cajun Crab Au Gratin Preparation

In a large bowl combine the crab meat and green onions. In another bowl lightly beat the egg, mayonnaise, cajun spice, 1/4 cup of cream and the red chile sauce together. In a small frying pan, over medium heat, saute the mushroom in the butter until lightly browned. Salt and pepper to taste and add to the crab mixture. Add the egg mixture to the crab meat and mushrooms and gently mix trying not to break the crab meat up too much. Add the Panko and Swiss cheese and gently toss. To cook, divide the mixture evenly among 6 oven proof ramekins. Drizzle 1 Tablespoon of whipping cream over each ramekin of crab meat. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned and heated through (about 15 to 20 minutes) being careful not to let the top burn. Remove, dust with a little paprika, and serve at once. NOTES : This can be served as a first course or a main course with side dishes. I find this is even tastier if allowed to sit covered overnight in the refrigerator before cooking.
