Ingredients

1 pkg (227 g)
Clover Leaf Crab Delectables™, Flake Style or Leg Style, very finely chopped like shreds
8 oz (250 g)
Light, brick-style cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp (30 mL)
Lemon juice
1 tbsp (15 mL)
Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp (2 mL)
each dried dillweed, salt and pepper
4
Large wheat flour tortillas, any flavour
4
blanched asparagus spears (approx)

Preparation

  1. Blend the crab shreds with the cream cheese, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, dillweed, salt and pepper until well mixed. Lay the tortillas out on a clean working surface. Divide the crab mixture equally between the tortillas, spreading in an even layer and leaving a 1-inch (2.5 cm) border around the edge.
  2. Place one or two pieces of blanched asparagus at one end of each tortilla. Roll up tightly to enclose the filling, making a pinwheel. Tightly wrap and chill for 30 minutes or for up to 24 hours. Slice each tortilla into 8 rounds; discard the ends.

Makes 32 appetizers.

Tips:

  • Substitute red pepper, green onion, carrot, cucumber or green beans for the asparagus.
  • Varying the flavours of the wraps and vegetable centres will make a colourful platter perfect for entertaining.
