Instead of lump crabmeat, you can also use jumbo lump or special, if desired. Cut in half, these make a great starter.
4 slices crusty Italian bread
4 Tbsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 small garlic clove, grated or mashed to a paste
3/4 tsp. smoked paprika
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 large shallot, thinly sliced into rings
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
8 oz. fresh lump crabmeat
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Crab Toasts with Smoky Garlic Mayo


1. Center a rack in oven and heat to 425 degrees. Brush bread all over with 2 tablespoons oil, then season lightly with salt and pepper. Transfer to oven and toast until browned around edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise, ketchup, garlic, smoked paprika, and cayenne in a small bowl and set aside.
2. Combine shallot, remaining 2 tablespoons oil, the lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Spread crab on a large paper towel-lined plate and pick through for shells, then pat dry. Add crabmeat and parsley to bowl with shallot mixture and toss gently to combine.
3. To serve, spread mayo mixture evenly over toasts, then divide crab mixture over top.
