Crisp and light, these Crab Stuffed Snow Peas are a great appetizer you can make ahead. They will be a hit appetizer at your next party!
Crab Stuffed Snow Peas make a refreshing appetizer or anytime light snack. One key tip is to only slightly blanch the pea pods to keep them nice and crisp. Do not over cook the pea pods or you will have soggy pods instead of a nice crisp bite. For the crab mixture, the better quality of crab you use the better the flavour will be. You can use canned or fresh cooked crab in this recipe.
