With a small amount of fresh crab left over, we wondered what we could make and came up with these easy, very tasty party bites. At around 20 calories (if that) per portion, your guests will enjoy the light crunch against the sweet crab. Not only that, but they are very cost effective to make.
You can find dressed crab at the supermarket for around £4 or £5. If using this, you’ll probably end up with between 20-30 crab party bites – a little goes a long way. Even these could be halved again for the perfect one bite. They look very impressive, and the French toast is easy to make too, here's how:Take a loaf of white bread and slice thickly. Toast on both sides. Remove crusts then take a sharp knife and slice (horizontally) through the toast. Now toast the untoasted sides. Cut each piece of toast in half lengthways, then cut into thirds. Each slice of bread will yield 12 pieces of French toast. Mix the brown and white crab meat together, add a drop of lemon juice and mayonnaise. Season with black pepper and top with a little watercress (or chives/spring onion tops).
Do you know how many calories you are allowed each day?
Here's a link to our very first blog post about our weight loss journey, which we began in January 2011. We started this blog as a way of recording what we ate while losing weight. The blog is a food diary, and contains lots of recipes, tips and ideas about losing weight.
