Galatoire's Crabmeat Yvonne


  • 6 artichokes
  • 1 lbs mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup clarified butter
  • 2 lbs backfin lump crabmeat
  • Salt and ground white pepper
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped fine
  • 6 lemon wedges


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut stem from artichokes flush with the base and boil artichokes for 45 minutes, or until a leaf pulls off easily. Remove from pot, drain and cool. Pull off leaves and reserve for another purpose. Remove choke and slice the bottoms. Set aside.

In a large skillet sauté mushrooms in clarified butter. Add reserved artichoke bottoms and crabmeat. Heat through, stirring gently. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley.

Serve on toast points with a lemon wedge on the side.
