Crab Poppers with Sriracha Aioli
I’m always looking to serve delicious appetizers whenever we have a holiday gathering. If it’s something I’m going to be serving at our holiday parties, the recipes need to meet a couple of things. First, whatever I’m making needs to be delicious. I want my guests to keep coming back for more. Second, it needs to be an easy recipe. I want something I can whip up quick so I can spend less time in the kitchen and more time with my family and friends. Luckily, these Crab Poppers with Sriracha Aioli Crab Poppers with Sriracha Aioli dipping sauce meet both of my requirements.

I took my favorite crab cake recipes and just made it bite-sized making these the perfect appetizer for entertaining. The smaller pieces are still full of flavor and will have everyone coming back for more.

Plus, did I mention how easy they are to make? I used a mini cupcake pan but you could always roll them and bake them on a cookie sheet too if you don’t have a mini cupcake pan.

I lined the cupcake pan with a non-stick cooking spray and coated the sides with unseasoned panko breadcrumbs for a little crunch.

In a pan melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 of chopped green onions. Once the butter is melted and the onions have cooked a minute or two, set aside.

In a large bowl, I mixed one pack of Louis Kemp® Crab Delights® Flake Style, garlic, panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, green onions, butter and green onions, and parsley in a large bowl. Gently stir to combine all the ingredients.  Crab Delights are made with premium Wild Alaskan Pollock fillets and are gluten-free. They’re naturally low in calories and cholesterol. Alaskan Pollack is the most abundant certified sustainable fish species and is a great source of protein
