Horsey Crab Deviled Eggs

1 doz large or extra large eggs
1/2 cup crab meat
1/2 - 1 tsp horseradish
3 Tbs cream cheese (room temp)
3 Tbs mayo (more or less)
3 Tbs cilantro, chopped
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and pepper, to taste
scallions, for garnish

Boiling eggs:
In large sauce pot fill half with water.  Slightly tap eggs on counter breaking seal of shell.  (This will help remove shell after cooking). Be careful not to tap too hard breaking shell completely.  Place eggs in water and boil on high until water starts to boil.  Reduce heat to med and cook for 10 mins.  Drain hot liquid adding cold water to pot until eggs are cool enough to start peeling.  Leaving eggs wet will help remove shells easily.  Slice eggs in half (length wise), removing yolk.

Add yolk and all other ingredients to mixing bowl, completely mix well.  Add filling to cooked egg whites.  Garnish with scallion.
