I have tried to replicate it by sense memory. Maybe you would have better luck with finding
a genuine recipe. Thanks,
I cannot find any mention of a "Scandinavia Restaurant" in Los Angeles. I think you mean the
"Scandia Restaurant" at 9040 Sunset Boulevard, that featured Scandinavian cuisine. However, I
cannot find any mention of them serving a dish called "Crab Dante" or "Crabmeat Dante" or
"Crab Meat Dante". I could not find a dish with any of those names at all. I found a scan of
a Scandia menu online here: LA Weekly.
There is no listing for an appetizer called "Crabmeat Dante", but under the heading
"Appetizers - The Hot Delights", I found this listing:
The Mushrooms with Deviled Crab: Fresh crabmeat cooked with shallots and mustard stuffed into
I searched for, but could not find, any recipe for Scandia's "mushrooms stuffed with deviled crab".
Sorry. There are other crabmeat stuffed mushrooms recipes on the web, with a variety of mustards
and cheeses. See these sites:
I will post this for reader input
Wow, thank you. Scandia. That was the dish, thank you. They must have changed the name to Dante
on a later menu. I really appreciate your trying.
