A while back I said that I was going to try to make more appetizers. We don't entertain much, unless it is the kids coming over, so I have decided to use our Sunday NASCAR (and eventually football GO SEAHAWKS) day as a great excuse to throw together some "nibbles".
I had really been craving some seafood and almost made some of my Halibut Ceviche, which we all love, but I knew I wanted to make something new for the blog. Then I thought of my second favorite seafood.....crab. OK now do I make a hot crab dip, cold crab dip? So many decisions, but the weather was actually nice for a few days so I went with cold.
This was one of those rare occasions when I had someone other than just Kevin to experiment on. My daughter was staying with us for a couple of days. Yay, a new guinea pig!! Kevin wasn't feeling very well so I wasn't sure if he would even try it, he had been in the bedroom most of the day. But I crossed my fingers and went for it.
This recipe is ridiculously easy! I love those don't you? Who wants to spend a couple hours in the kitchen making appetizers while everyone else is having fun right? Well this is a great one to get you in and out of the kitchen and mingling with your friends and family in no time flat.
The verdict? Miss Picky pants loved it and Kevin even ventured out of his cave to grab a small bowl with some crackers. The bowl came back empty so I guess that is a good sign!
1/2 pound crab meat
3 tablespoons non fat Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon champagne mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Hot sauce to taste (I used Franks Red Hot)
Mix the first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and add hot sauce to whatever heat level you desire.
* I made a small batch since it was just the three of us. I would double if you are serving more.
