Paula Deen Seasoned Salt
Paula Deen Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1 lb claw crabmeat, clean, picked and cooked
1 lb lump crabmeat, cleaned, picked and cooked
1   lemon, zested and juiced, plus more for dipping glass
2 to 3   small tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoon spicy or Dijon mustard
1 cup mayonnaise
12 to 15   fresh asparagus stalks
Paula Deen’s House Seasoning
Crab boil seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)
Lemon wedges, for garnish
Olives, for garnish





In a large pot bring salted water to a boil and blanch the asparagus by placing them in boiling salted water for 1 minute, and immediately shocking them in a bowl of ice water.

Trim the very bottom of the asparagus and discard. Cut off the top 2-inches of the asparagus and set aside for garnish. Finely chop the remaining asparagus. In a medium bowl, combine the asparagus with the mayonnaise, mustard, tomatoes, and lemon zest and lemon juice. Gently fold the crabmeat into the asparagus mixture and season to taste with Lemon Pepper Seasoning, Seasoned Salt and House Seasoning.

Using the extra lemon juice wet the rim of the martini glass and dip it into the crab boil seasoning. Put the crab mixture into the prepared glass and serve with the asparagus tops, lemon wedges, and olives as garnish.

Too bad all of the seasonings must be purchased from Paula. If you can't afford it, the recipes don't turn out the same and are of no use.
