Krab Topper

It was one of those days when I really didn't feel like cooking for lunch. But who was I kidding? I ended up making a bigger mess in my kitchen because I was too lazy to make a "formal" meal. 

I thought that since it was one of those lazy days, I could get by with crackers and maybe a little dip. Boy, did I think wrong. Once I got the imitation crab (or krab with a K) out from the fridge and started flaking it, my "simple lunch" turned into a full blown kitchen experiment. I knew it was getting serious when I even went out to my herb garden and grabbed a few sprigs of parsley.

The result was a delicious appetizer/lunch that I couldn't stop eating. Even when I ran out of crackers, I just spooned the krab mixture into my mouth. I promise - it's that good!

What you need: 

4 oz Neufchatel cheese, softened
6 oz imitation crab (or "krab")
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
few drops of Sriracha

What to do: 

Mix everything in a bowl (except the crackers). Make sure the Neufchatel cheese is evenly distributed. Spoon the mixture on top of crackers before serving.
paper plate = snowman love!

Tips, Tricks and Tweaks: 

1. Substitute Neufchatel with cream cheese. I only used Neufchatel because it has less fat (and it was what I had in the fridge!)
2. Parsley has a very strong flavor. Reduce the amount if you don't like it. Or better yet, skip it!
3. Tabasco can be used in place of Sriracha.
