Recipe #274: Crab Canapés

This was supposed to be for a party, but Mother Nature had other ideas, so it became dinner at home.  I was skeptical about the fake crab, but it was delicious.  I'd try it with real crab too, to see if there's a difference, but it's great as-is.  The cucumber complements it perfectly, but little toasts are probably good too.  I'm not the biggest fan of parsley, but I definitely wouldn't leave it out here.  Fresh and yummy.


3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 package (8oz) imitation crabmeat
1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 green onions, sliced
1-2 cucumbers, sliced
Fresh parsley for garnish (I used curly because it divides nicely and is "compact" for these little things)


Combine cream cheese, lemon juice, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl and mix well.

Stir in crabmeat, bell pepper and green onions; cover.  Chil about an hour or more until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, spoon 1 1/2 teaspoons of the mixture onto each cucumber slice and garnish with parsley.
