Left over king crab meat- what can I do with it?

Last night had to make room in the freezer for other stuff. I cooked all of our crab legs. Of course, we couldn't eat all of them. I just spent an 1hour+ digging the meat out of the legs. Unfortunately, it must have continued to cook last night, while I was haveing an extra glass of wine or 2. The long and short of it, I have about 1 3/4 cups of dry shredded crab meat. Any suggestions?

    Steeler Fan,
    add it to scollops shrimp and haddock for a casserole, best omelet i ever had was smoked salmon, crab, tomatoes and cheddar.

    Steeler Fan,[p]I do two things with "leftover" king crab meat. [p]King crab stew is really good. The ingredients are:[p] 2 cups King Crab meat
    2 quarts Milk
    2 shallots finely chopped
    2 Tbsp finely chopped Celery
    2 Tbsp Butter
    1 Tbsp Flour
    1 tsp chopped fresh Parsley
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/3 tsp White Pepper
    Paprika[p]Saute the shallot and celery in a little butter, add the rest of the ingredients except the crab and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the crab and simmer for a few more minutes then serve.[p]I also add it to my twice baked potato recipe. King Crab twice baked potatoes are really nice. I am serving them with prime rib for Christmas dinner this year.[p]Have a great Christmas[p]Chuck
