I'm posting this recipe for my daughter to bring to my pot luck Zaar tapas party. Its from the Greatest Ever Tapas cookbook that she bought for me. I haven't tried this recipe yet!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in a pan; add onion & cook for 5 minutes, or until softened but not brown, followed by garlic for another 30 seconds.
  2. Add a splash of wine & cook for 1 – 2 minutes, or until most of the wine has evaporated.
  3. Lightly whisk the eggs in a large bowl followed by the milk or cream; add the crabmeat, cheese, parsley & the onion mixture.
  4. Season with nutmeg and salt & pepper to taste; mix well.
  5. Carefully spoon the mixture into the tart shells, taking care not to overfill them; bake in a preheated 375F oven for 25 – 30 minutes.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature, garnished with fresh dill sprigs.

These are not only delicious but look wonderful on the serving platter. They got rave reviews on the September long weekend as well as Thanksgiving. Other then using the olive oil on hand I made as posted - yes lovely, tasty and delicate. The only way these could be improved upon ... is enjoying them at one of your parties! Thank you Marg - love those recipes of yours.

simply delicious marg, I did do a few adjustments to the recipe, I increased the garlic and added in a litle cayenne pepper, I used Greek olive oil as that is the only kind I use, I actaully made the filling well in advance to blend the flavors, I am thinking how this would be using chicken??? thanks for this great recipe I will repeat again for the holidays!...Kitten:)
