Crab Canapés

Served on cucumber slices, these crab canapés are very low in fat. In addition to their great taste, cucumbers are also a good source of potassium and vitamin C.


Makes 16 servings


2/3 cup fat-free cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat or lobster, flaked
1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 green onions with tops, sliced (about 1/4 cup)
64 cucumber slices (about 2-1/2 medium cucumbers cut into 3/8-inch-thick slices) or melba toast rounds
Fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Combine cream cheese, lemon juice and hot pepper sauce in medium bowl; mix well. Stir in crabmeat, bell pepper and green onions; cover. Chill at least 1 hour to allow flavors to blend.
  2. When ready to serve, spoon 1-1/2 teaspoons crabmeat mixture onto each cucumber slice. Place on serving plate; garnish with parsley, if desired.
