Oh hey hi! I’m back with another video and a super easy recipe to whet your appetite. This time, it’s a no-cook recipe that requires very little preparation. As a busy working mom, I often look to create quick and delicious recipes for snacks or mini get-togethers. With the group size capped to 5/household at any one time, these bite-sized hors d’oeuvres are perfect for entertaining. I brought it to a family gathering for taste testing and it was 3 generations approved!
Using DoDo‘s crab chunks, I don’t even have to peel the plastic wrapping off or slice the crabsticks. Just remove it from the package and it’s ready to be devoured. What I love most about these affordable DoDo crab chunks are the 90g package size and the $1.70 price. It’s the perfect size for 1-2 pax. It’s also the perfect amount to use for your stir-fries, personal hotpot, pasta, and more…
For this recipe, I was inspired by little tapas with Thai flavours infused into them. The sauce made is also known as Nam Jim Talay, a popular Thai seafood dipping sauce. The mayonnaise on the vessel adds depth with its creaminess to bring all the fresh herby flavours together. It also balances out the spiciness of the sauce while the sweetness of the crab chunks marries the tanginess of the sauce beautifully. If you’d like to see more recipes like that, let me know. 🙂
