We've been told that these two dishes "go nicely together" so we've decided to run them again ... together ... with that extra little hint! Try both!

Crab ‘n Crackers

For easier spreading, get flaked crabmeat or chop larger pieces.

16-ounce container of flaked crab
2 bricks of cream cheese, 8 ounces each
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 bunch scallions
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Drain and pick over the crab meat. Butter or spray a baking dish. Let cream cheese come to “room” temperature and use a fork to work in the milk and Worcestershire sauce. Cut up white and light green parts of the scallions and mash them in. Add crab. Spread in the baking dish and sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350 degrees 15 minutes or nuke on Medium about 2 minutes to heat through. Serve warm, surrounded by crackers. Makes two pounds of spread.


Throw everything in a tightly sealed bag, keep it cold and head for the boat. By the time the stern grill is hot, the chicken or chops will be drenched in flavor.
12-ounce bottle or can of black lager
1 bunch scallions, light sections only, minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons minced garlic
6 to 8 meaty, bone-in chicken thighs
Mix lager, sugar, soy sauce and garlic in the bag and add chicken. Seal bag and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for 3 to 24 hours.  Grill chicken in a covered grill over medium-high heat 25 minutes or until it tests done (170 degrees). Discard the bag and marinade or bring the beer mixture it to a boil for five minutes and use it as a sauce.
