    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • 6 ounces crabmeat (picked over thoroughly)
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
    • salt and pepper
    • 8 ounces snow peas, stems and strings removed (about 60 pods)
    • 1 red pepper, seeded and cut into slivers (about the size of a matchstick)


    1. 1
      In a bowl, beat cream cheese with the lemon juice until smooth.
    2. 2
      Add crabmeat and onion and mix well.
    3. 3
      Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour (until mixture is firm; its easier to handle this way).
    5. 5
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil and blanch the pea pods (about 45 seconds).
    6. 6
      Remove the peas and immerse in a large bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process.
    7. 7
      Drain on a paper towel and pat dry.
    8. 8
      With the point of a sharp knife, split open the curved seam of each of the peas.
    9. 9
      Using a small spoon or cocktail fork, fill each pea with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the crab mixture.
    10. 10
      Arrange on a platter and garnish with the red pepper slices.

      Made these over 3 weeks ago to include on my finger food buffet for a group I host each month, & am just now getting around to posting the review! These ABSOLUTELY GREAT thingies were gone in no time at all! When I have the time, I really enjoy doing this kind of thing, especially when they turn out as tasty as these did! Most definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing it, Kim! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders]

      Wow are these ever so good! I cut the recipe down to serve 10. I made as posted and would not change a thing. These are really easy to prepare but just a bit time consuming. Thanks Kim127 for posting.

      We loved these addictive, crispy, creamy snow peas. I made them as an appetizer to bring to a neighborhood women's wine happy hour and they were proclaimed "out of this world". I halved the recipe since I just didn't have the patience to slit and stuff all 60 of them. I also added a spoon of chili sauce to the mixture for some zip. These are very labor intensive, but your friends or family will thank you.
