Dill and Crab Louis Roulade

 

Dill and Crab Louis Roulade

This is a complete throw back retro-ish dish.  It’s perfect for a Sunday brunch buffet, picnic, or light lunch.  It’s dead easy to make and lovely for this time of year.  It’s kind of like a rolled and stuffed soufflé.  The Louis dressing makes a fair bit, so you might want to poach some wild American shrimp while you’re at it.  Having said that, you could also make a Shrimp Louis Roulade...what ever floats your boat or catches your fancy.

 

Louis Dressing

Ingredients

2 cups mayonnaise

½ cup ketchup

2 tablespoons horseradish

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

½ tablespoon garlic powder

½ tablespoon onion powder

1-tablespoon paprika

1-teaspoon white pepper

¾ cup sweet pickle relish, strained

1-tablespoon capers, minced

1 rib celery, minced

 

Dill and Crab Roulade

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

¼ cup fresh white breadcrumbs

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus approximately 4 tablespoons additional

1-2 ounces or package of fresh dill, tough stalks removed and chopped

4 large eggs, separated

2/3 cup whipping cream

½ pound of jumbo lump crab meat, picked through

2 tablespoons hot water

Salt and pepper

 

Make the Louis dressing

Whisk together the above ingredients for the Louis dressing.  Refrigerate until ready to assemble roulade.

 

Make the Roulade

Line a cookie sheet or Swiss roll pan, which measures 9x13 with parchment paper.  Butter the paper and sprinkle with two tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.

 

In a large bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, ½ cup of Parmesan cheese, dill, egg yolks and, cream.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Fold hot water into breadcrumb to soften mixture.  Whisk egg whites until stiff in a separate bowl, then fold into mixture.  Carefully pour into prepared pan and bake for 10-15 minutes until well risen and just firm.  Do not over bake. 

 

Remove roll from oven and cover with a damp cloth – to prevent it from drying out and cracking when rolled.  Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese on another piece of parchment paper.  Turn roulade on to paper and cover with the damp towel.  

 

Mix crabmeat with Louis dressing.  Start by adding the dressing a ¼ cup at a time and continue until you have a spreadable but not overly wet consistency.  Remove towel from roulade, spread crab mixture over roulade, and roll up from the long side.   Wrap the parchment paper around roulade and refrigerate it until ready to serve.  Serve with extra dressing on side and lemon wedges.
