Delicate and crisp phyllo dough is formed into little pockets that are the base for a creamy and flavor-packed filling. Tender crab meat is mixed with mayonnaise, chives, cucumber, and lemon to create an irresistable filling. These savory treats make a great appetizer or game-day snack, the creamy filling and the crisp shell make the perfect combination of textures and flavors in each bite.

Ingredients

  • 1 package phyllo dough
  • olive oil
  • 200 grams crab meat
  • 1/4 cup chives (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cucumber (peeled and seeded)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut the phyllo dough sheets into strips, then into squares.
  3. Brush the squares with olive oil using a brush.
  4. Using a mini-muffin or mini-cannele pan, place a square of phyllo dough in each space so that you can form a small corolla. If you cannot bake all the squares at once, keep them well packaged as the phyllo dough tends to dry quickly in the open air. Cook for 10 minutes or until small petals are golden brown.
  5. In a medium-sized bowl, gently mix the crab meat with finely chopped chives, lemon zest, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.
  6. Peel and seed the cucumber and cut it into sticks. Add the cucumber to the crab mixture and store in the refrigerator.
  7. When serving, garnish each corolla with a little crab and serve immediately.

This is great for a party because I was able to make everything ahead of time. I used lots of lemon zest and pepper to give these a really bright, lively flavor.
