Crab Hash With Old Bay & Basil
USA WEEKEND columnist Pam Anderson
- Heat 2 tablespoons oil over low heat in a 12-inch non-stick skillet (so potatoes don't stick). While skillet heats, prepare onion and crab as directed above. A few minutes before cooking, increase heat to medium-high. When oil starts to send up wisps of smoke, add onion and crab; cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Meanwhile, dice potatoes and toss with remaining oil. Transfer crab mixture to a bowl and reserve.
- Add potatoes to empty skillet; cook, stirring only occasionally so they form a golden-brown crust, about 10 minutes. As potatoes cook, mix ketchup, mustard, Old Bay(tm) Seasoning, fresh basil and 2 tablespoons of water. (Recipe can be prepared to this point up to 2 hours ahead. Spread hot potatoes on a large lipped cookie sheet; cover when cool. Return skillet to medium-high; add potatoes and re-crisp.)
- Return reserved crab mixture to skillet; stir in ketchup mixture, then season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until hash has nicely browned, about 5 minutes longer.

The potatoes get done faster if you cut them small and broil in the oven for 5-10 min rather than cook in pan on stove (they get crisper). then you can just add the crab mixture right into the ...
Very tasty. I added a little more Old Bay than called for. This would be good with fried eggs for breakfast. The only reason that I'm not giving it 5 stars is that there seems to be something mi...
Quick and easy, but crab makes for a more expensive shopping list, and the dish as a whole just isn't flavorful / colorful enough to warrant it.
Made a version of this with shredded potatoes that went pretty well. Also shredded the onions. Other then that I kept it mostly the same. Quite yummy!
