corn and crab pie1 can Mexicorn – 11 oz can
½ jalapeno or Serrano pepper (remove seeds) finely chopped
8 oz fresh lump or claw crab meat
1 package Jiffy or other corn muffin mix (8 ½ oz)
2 eggs, room temperature
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 large garlic clove, chopped
¾ cup milk
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
Dash of salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons melted butter for top crust after baking
Optional, 10 cherry tomatoes

Preheat oven 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients above, except butter in a large mixing bowl. Stir gently and only until ingredients are blended together. Use a well (9 inches) greased (solid or liquid oil) iron skillet or a metal baking pan (if pan is non-stick, still grease lightly). Pour in mixture, even out and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly (5 minutes) and loosen sides with a knife. Place large plate over skillet or pan, turn over and tap top of pan to loosen. Your corn and crab pie should rest nicely on plate. Spread butter over top crust.
Optional, 10 cherry tomatoes - cross cut tops and place around pie.

This dish is wonderful with chicken, turkey, beef, or pork and can stand alone as a satisfying main dish.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece "Pulp Fiction" tells the story of two hit men Jules and Vincent played by acting giants Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta. Bruce Willis also stars as Butch, an over the hill boxer in all kinds of trouble. Please check out the video below set in a diner that's being robbed, and the thieves have the misfortune of running into Jules and Vincent.

In "Pulp Fiction", the diner's special that day could have been our recipe, "My Oh My, It's Corn and Crab Pie." Jules was enjoying every savory bit, when some dumb ass decides to stick a gun in his face. Huge mistake, never come between a man and his corn and crab pie!
