Crab-Stuffed Snow Peas

Crab meat is back at the market and we have snow peas, so why not stuff the snow peas with crab meat?! We’re already fantasizing about this combo. Recipes don’t have to be complex to be delicious!


  • 1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce or seafood cocktail sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 drops hot pepper sauce
  • dash of pepper
  • 16 fresh snow peas


In small bowl, combine the crab, mayonnaise, chili sauce, salt, pepper sauce and pepper.

Place snow peas in a steamer basket; place in a small saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 30 seconds for until softened. Drain and immediately place snow peas in ice water. Drain and pat dry.

With a sharp knife, split pea pods along the curved edges. Spoon 1 tablespoon of crab mixture into each. Refrigerate until serving. Yield: 16 appetizers.
