Crab Claw Sensation
Prep time
Total time
Recipe by:
Serves: 4 to 6
  • 1 pound cracked blue crab claws
  • 1 cup Hanley’s Sensation salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon Acadiana Table Cajun Seasoning Blend, see recipe here
  • ½ cup diced green onion tops
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the crab claws and toss with the dressing. Sprinkle over the seasoning and toss again. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Before serving, drain the claws of excess dressing. Sprinkle with green onion tops and toss once more before serving.
Prep time does not include marination time. I urge you to seek out Hanley’s Sensation dressing (I find it at Rouse’s) or order it from Hanley's website. If you want to scratch-make your version of Sensation dressing, there are several online recipes to choose from like this one from my friend Chef John Folse.
This recipe is not overly spicy so feel free to add more Cajun seasoning or even hot sauce to your taste. Be sure to add the crisp green onions just before serving or risk them wilting after a long stint in the marinade. Some folks might think a dipping sauce should accompany these claws, but it would only mask the fresh crab flavor delicately enhanced with this sensational dressing.
