Crab Salad Canapes

This same crab salad recipe can be used for making great tasting canapes for your next entertaining party. Simply follow the recipe as above BUT dice all the ingredients to a smaller size.

A slice of cucumber can be used under the salad instead of lettuce or cracker. A slight sprinkle of paprika ads a finishing touch of colour.

Did you know that Spider crabs are the most popular in Europe because of their long legs, which contain lots of sweet succulent meat.

In North America nothing beats the Alaskan king crab. Their legs are really long and full of flavourful meat.

Crab legs purchased from the grocery stores are almost always pre-cooked and flash frozen. Cooking these is just a matter of reheating; by boiling, steaming or microwaving.

The freshness and the flavour is ensured by cooking the legs as soon as the crabs are caught. All the commercial crab boats are out-fitted with proper kitchens and flash freezers.
