I will eventually be transitioning my recipes to UK/metric measurements and foods..... but here's another american recipe in the mean time:
Crab meat and cream cheese dip makes for some incredibly quick/easy hors d'oeuvres! It goes great with all types of crackers and breads. Perhaps even bruschetta? It is one of the easiest things you could slap together for a party and throw out at the last minute. You can keep cost down by buying tinned crab, if you're not a snob about such things. I am not. hehe
You will need:
8 oz. cream cheese (1/3 less fat seems to work fine)
6 oz. crab meat
10 oz cocktail sauce
Crackers (onion or Ritz do the trick...!)
1. Allow cream cheese to sit at room temperature for a bit. Spread it around a plate in a circle, about 1/2 - 1inch thick.
2. Sprinkle crab meat over top.
3. Evenly-cover in cocktail sauce for the necessary 'tang'. Most cocktail sauces have 'bits' in them which I prefer to strain. But obviously this is completely unnecessary if they do not offend your's or your guest's palette.
And there ya go! Seafood for picky eaters and partyers alike.
