Crab Bites

 It's time for Fish Friday Foodies.  

Crab Bites

This month our hostess is Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla.   Camilla has access to all kinds of great ingredients and uses them in so many different dishes.  I admit to drooling over a lot of it, and being envious that her family is adventurous in their eating.  

Camilla set the theme this month - Let's make some diminutive seafood bites. Amuse-bouche are single, bite-sized hors d'œuvre. Get creative with a seafood-based amuse-bouche and we can all have a virtual #FishFridayFoodies holiday party.  

Well gee, I love appetizers and especially ones that are one and two bite sized.  That way you can try a variety of appetizers without filling up.  

Back when we could still gather safely, in numbers, without masks, I used to host an event once a month called Tapas.  

I'd have so much fun playing with different recipes, and our guests usually brought really interesting and fun foods to try as well. 

But since there's just my palate to worry about, at the moment, I decided to have fun with an idea that's been ping ponging around in my brain for awhile.   

And boy, am I glad I did.   I had the loveliest lunch, although I did make these two bite size.

However, you can make them much smaller and they'll still be delicious.  

I froze some of them for later on.   

Is it later yet?  

I have to tell you, these were so good, I inhaled 6 of them right off the bat, and looked longingly, very longingly at the remainder, but I restrained myself.  And hurried up and froze them.

For the Bites
  1.  Crush up 16 Clubhouse crackers, leaving small chunks, place in bowl.
  2. Lightly whisk together the egg, mayonnaise and green curry paste.  Add to the crushed crackers and mix.  Set aside for a few minutes to allow the crackers to hydrate a little.
  3. Break the crab up a little, then add to the cracker/egg mixture.  Mix together with your hands, gently, trying not to break up the crab too much. 
  4. Using a small spoon or scoop, form into balls. Approximately just over a tablespoon each.  
  5. Roll the balls in the reserved cracker/almond flour combo until coated evenly.  Place in a greased shallow baking pan and top with a little butter.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. 
  7. Serve hot with the dipping sauce.
Dipping sauce
  1. Whisk the lime juice and mayonnaise together and then add the Sweet Hot Chile sauce. 
  2. Serve a dollop on each Crab Bite.

You can bake these straight out of the freezer, just add an extra 5-7 minutes to the cooking time.  They're great to grab out of the freezer for a last minute appetizer.
