Mahi Reuben Sandwich Recipe

Mahi Reuben Sandwich Recipe

My husband and I love eating seafood. Not only is it great for you, but it is a fresh and delicious option to meat. And I know I can’t be the only one that needs a break from chicken now and again ;) We had some fresh Mahi from Anderson Seafoods and making a fun sandwich was definitely in order.

This recipe only has 4 main ingredients, and then your toppings.

Once you have coated your Mahi in the pancake and corn flake mixture you will pan saute it. I used Coconut Oil in the pan, as I believe it’s a better option, but you can use EVOO if you prefer. You only need a small amount.

Once your delicious Mahi is cooking, you assembled your topping and get ready for your new favorite sandwich! This recipe calls for Cole Slaw, I also make my own, but if you prefer store bought, I’m sure you can do it.

Now, here’s the recipe, make sure to Pin It and Print It so that you can make it again and again.

Once the apples are cut, simply use a Football toothpick to “spear” the SNICKERS into the apple.

Baked Crab Rangoon Recipe

Baked Crab Rangoon Recipe

Baked Crab Rangoon Recipe

We got Crab Rangoon from Chinese take-out a few weeks ago and I was amazed by how little actual crab there was in them!  I mean, I felt like I was basically eating deep-fried cream cheese.  So, I decided I would try my hand at making some that actually had crab in them…and I was going to BAKE them :)  You all know that I love sharing recipes that have a healthy twist to them.  I had some Crab Meat in my refrigerator from Anderson Seafoods so it was the perfect time to get cooking.

Crab Rangoon Recipe

I actually didn’t use a ton of ingredients, just the crab, garlic, onions, peppers, and sauces.  And wonton wrappers of course ;)

Crab Rangoon Recipe

Once you have all your ingredients ready you just mix them together.  I wanted mine to have more actual crab than cream cheese, so you will see that mine are full of that delicious seafood.

Crab Rangoon Recipe

Once you have everything mixed together, line a cookie sheet with wonton wrappers and begin filling each one.  Put the mixture in the center of the wrapper.

Crab Rangoon Recipe

I kind of “swaddled” mine, once two sides are folded in, wrap up the other two sides and pinch the ends together.  You may need a splash of water next to you to wet your fingers to insure that ends stay pinched together.  This sounds more difficult that it really is, once you get the hang of it, you will be done in no time :)

Ok, now here is the recipe.  Make sure to print it and pin it so that you can make it again in the future.

Baked Crab Rangoon Recipe

Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 14
 
Ingredients
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 oz reduced fat cream cheese
  • 4 oz crabmeat, drained and flaked
  • ¼ cup diced peppers - I used tricolor
  • ¼ cup diced green onions
  • 1 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ teaspoon light soy sauce
  • Old Bay Seasoning to taste
  • Wonton wrappers - found in the produce section at my store
Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients together, besides the wonton wrappers
  2. Line cookie sheet with wonton wrappers
  3. Scoop 1-2 tablespoons into the center each wrapper - I used my cookie scooper :)
  4. If you like Old Bay, gently sprinkle it over the mixture at this point. - I did one batch with it, and one without it, and we leaned towards the batch that had it
  5. Take two sides of the wrapper and gently fold it over the crab mixture and gently press it in so that it "sticks" to the crab without coming open - I refer to the folding as swaddling
  6. Then take the two other sides and bring them to the center
  7. Pinch the ends together - uses a small amount of water on your fingers to firmly close the ends together if needed *refer to pictures in post as needed
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 mins or until wrappers brown
  9. Serve with soy sauce or Orange Marmalade - we used the Orange Marmalade
  10. Enjoy!

 

 

Recipe for Baked Crab Rangoon Wontons

The only thing I think I would change would be to add in a bit of “heat”, my husband and I tend to like things a bit spicy, so I think next time I will add in a dash of hot sauce to my mixture.  But, overall we were very happy with this Crab Rangoon Recipe, it had great texture and flavor…and they weren’t fried ;)

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

I think Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of the ultimate game day or weekend snacks. I made it over the holiday break a couple times for gatherings and it’s always one of the most popular appetizers out :)

Did you realize how easy it was to make? You only need a few ingredients and shredded chicken!

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

To make shredded chicken I always just toss a few breasts (usually frozen) in the crockpot and let them cook all day. In 3-4 hours they are moist and ready to be shredded! I love using shredded chicken in numerous recipes and I have found that getting the chicken ready in the crockpot is the easiest way.

Recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip

I used to buy Buffalo Chicken Dip at the store pre-made all the time, until I realized it tastes a LOT better when you make it yourself and prep time is pretty minimal.

Now, here’s the recipe. Make sure to print it and pin it so that you can make it again and again.
