Fire-Roasted Crab Shooters

December 21, 2009 by  

This is taken from the Betty Crocker Website; when I first posted this, I had not made it yet — which was sort of a “no no”, as I really only want the “tried and true” recipes on Today’s Cliche. However, I decided to make it for Christmas Eve… and bring it over (in a car… with 4 screaming kids… was I crazy??) for a cocktail hour. It went well, looked super hard and fancy… but wasn’t too challenging at all (well, the car looked like the leather seats menstruated, but other than that, the recipe at the cocktail party was a hit!

1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen® organic fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup tomato juice
1 slice (1/4 inch thick) red onion
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 drops red pepper sauce
1 small cucumber, peeled, diced (3/4 cup)
1 can (6 1/2 oz) special white crabmeat, drained (about 1 cup)
2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh dill weed

*** I added Old-Bay, and REALLY REALLY wish I added a tablespoon of crushed red pepper, or cumin, or cayenne pepper.
– The guests enjoyed it, and said it tasted like gaspacho, almost… but without a “kick”. Hence, the advice to add a pepper, above. When I make this again, there’s no way I won’t add a kicker.
– Lastly, I would NOT prepare this TOO far in advance, as it really needs to stay chilled, and these will NOT fit in your fridge after they’re in their presentation glasses.

  • In food processor, place all ingredients except cucumber, crabmeat and dill weed. Cover; process with on-and-off pulses until mixture is coarsely pureed. Stir in cucumber.
    Crossed out section was what Betty Crocker recommended
    ; Are you kidding? Bring out my food processor?? I don’t think so.
  • I just put in a bowl everything, all at once, except for the crabmeat and dill weed.

  • Spoon about 1/3 cup tomato mixture into each of 8 martini or wine glasses. (I didn’t have enough martini glasses since i doubled the recipe… plus, I thought some people might want to “just try a nibble of it”, instead of make a meal of it, especially with all of the other food there.
  • Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon crabmeat onto center of each cocktail. Sprinkle dill weed over top.

So, I decided to take some pics (not of the menstruating leather seats; don’t worry) of the finished project, before they got mutilated in car ride:

The lil tidbit of advice that I can give… is that if you are traveling in a car with them (again, not recommended, but if necessary), use these muffin tins to put the shot glasses in. Also, I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend AGAINST using any tall stemmed martini glasses when traveling with them!
