Slimming Eats Recipe
Extra Easy – syn free per serving
- ½ cup (120ml) of uncooked quinoa
- 170g of crab meat (fresh or canned)
- 1 cup (240ml) of fish stock (or you can use chicken or vegetable stock)
- 1 red chili, finely chopped
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- pinch off black pepper
- pinch of garlic salt
- 1 tsp of paprika
- little lemon zest
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- olive oil spray
- for the dip:
- 1 cup of fat free Greek yoghurt
- fresh mint, finely chopped
- juice and zest of half a lemon
- Thoroughly rinse the quinoa under a running cold tap.
- Place in a saucepan and cover with the stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until stock is absorbed (the quinoa grains should have what looks like a little hair on each grain). Turn off heat, but leave covered with the lid for about 10 mins, as the steam will continue to cook the quinoa.
- After 10 mins, fluff up the quinoa with a fork and allow to cool.
- In a large bowl, gently combine the quinoa, with the other ingredients. (Be careful not to over mix, as you want to keep big chunks of crab meat).
- Cover with cling film and refrigerate for about an hour.
- Preheat oven to 200c or 400f (gas mark 6)
- Grease a baking sheet with olive oil spray and then form the mixture into approx 12 medium sized patties.
- Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven (approx 30mins) until lightly golden all over. (you may want to carefully flip half way through cooking).
- While baking you can mix together all the ingredients for the dip.
- Serve with a side salad and the mint dip and Enjoy!!
