These muffins remind me of a New England crab or lobster roll, where they simply pile warm, buttery seafood on those toasted rolls. These would make a great game day party snack.

  • Combine crab meat, 1/2 cup pepper Jack cheese, mayonnaise, chili paste, lemon zest, and Worcestershire sauce together in a large bowl. Season with salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Whisk flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, buttermilk, green onion, and melted butter; whisk until combined.

  • Divide batter evenly in the prepared muffin tin, reaching 3/4 full. Tap the pan on the countertop to remove any air bubbles.

  • Scoop 1 to 2 tablespoons of the crab mixture into the center of each muffin. Lightly press the crab mixture into the batter. Top each muffin using 1/4 cup pepper Jack cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
