Ridiculously Easy Crab Meat Appetizer
So you'll have guests for dinner but you don't have much time to do anything. Still you want to treat your guests with a delicious appetizer. You came to the right place. I have an easy and fabulous recipe to share with you. Check out this Shrimp and Crab Meat Appetizer recipe. I guarantee you'll get plenty of compliments if you make it :)

What you need for ONE serving:

  • 1 small imitation crab meat stick (about 4 in long)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 5 to 8 tiny shrimps also called Shrimp meat
(picture shows ingredients for 2 servings)

  • Multiply the ingredients according to the amount of servings you want to make.
  • Those tiny shrimps are usually called shrimp meat. They can be found in most supermarkets at the sea food section. They usually come frozen and are sold by weight so you can buy any amount you need. You might also find those shrimps in small plastic tubs, not frozen.
  • Garnishing with chopped green onions or parsley add color to this appetizer.
  • You can use any small container like ramekins, party tasters containers, shells, a bread or desert dishes, just go to your cupboard and use your creativity.

What To Do:

Chop the crab meat stick in small pieces.

 Thaw the shrimp then rinse in cold water and pat dry with paper towel.

The quarter gives you an idea of the size of the shrimps.

Mix mayonnaise and crab meat. 

You can add a little bit of white pepper to spice things up, woohoooo!

Put the mayo and crab mix in the container you are going to serve the appetizer.

How about some ketchup and some hot sauce like Tabasco or Sriracha
