This is one to add to your Pinterest to make this week!
Crockpot Summer Crab Delight
I am always searching for relatively easy recipes that I can make for my family. Recently, my husband has been on a kick requesting seafood and shellfish more often. My aunt sent me this recipe, and I fell in love with it. I can have it completely prepped and in the crockpot in under 5 minutes and then leave it until I'm ready to serve dinner. It's one of the meals that I recommend for meal prep because you can easily put all of the ingredients (minus the crab) in a ziplock bag and it becomes a freezer friendly crockpot meal!
What Ingredients Go Into Summer Crab Delight?
Depending on whether you are following myww green, myww blue or myww purple, the points in this recipe will vary. While you have to count the points for the crabmeat on green or blue, it is a zero point food on purple. Then all you need to worry about it using a zero point olive oil or butter spray, which you should have on hand. I did make this handy dandy little shopping list for you, in case you wanted to go grab the rest of the ingredients for summer crab delight!
Is it really an easy weeknight dinner?
The best part about this recipe is that it can be as easy or as complicated as you want it to be. Do you have time to chop vegetables before dinner? Great! Save some money and buy your veggies whole! If you want to save time, you can simply buy containers of bell peppers, onions, carrots and squash already diced up at most of your local grocery stores. Then it's just a matter of combining the ingredients and letting them cook!
Can I Make This In A Skillet?
You can absolutely make this in a skillet. Start by spraying your skillet with the olive oil spray. Then, sautee your raw vegetables with garlic salt until they are nice and tender. Add in your diced tomatoes and the flaked crab and cook for another 5 minutes before serving with a sprinkling of fat-free mozzarella on top.
Can I Add Other Vegetables To This Recipe?
You can also add in extra veggies if you would like, after all, zero point foods help you feel full! (Sometimes, I like to add sugar snap peas to mine!) Here are some other vegetables I would recommend:
- Sugar Snap Peas
- Green Beans
What if I don't like crab?
There are a few alternatives to crab if you are looking for a substitution. If you are looking for a vegan substitution for crab, you can try jackfruit, hearts of palm, artichoke hearts or tofu. Other alternatives to crab are to use other fish that are similar in texture or flavor like pollack or hake. If you are looking for a non-seafood alternative for this recipe, go for a shredded chicken breast to keep the points low.
