This delicious fruity green smoothie really does taste good!  Many people are turned off by the color of green smoothies but not only are they healthy but they can taste good too!  With the right mix of ingredients (and the right blender), you can enjoy being healthy!  I often drink a green smoothie as a supplement to one of my 3 meals in a day.  Or I will sometimes drink it with a salad for lunch.  But the most important thing about this recipe is that it tastes good!!!!  You really can’t go wrong with the sweetness of all those fruits!

Healthy and Tasty ~ OH YEAH

SOUTHWESTERN CRAB BALLS WITH SRIRACHA DIPPIN SAUCE

CRAB BALLS INGREDIENTS:
1 lb. lump crab
Canola oil (enough to fill skillet quarter way up + 2 tbsp.)
¾ cup finely diced red bell peppers
½  cup finely diced red onions
1 cup cooked and cooled corn
¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 beaten eggs
1 cup crushed crackers (I used Ritz)
2 tsp. worcestershire
1 tbsp. country Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. mayo (I used Hellmann’s)
1-2 tsp. sea salt
1-2 tsp. black pepper
1-2 tsp. crushed garlic
Juice of 1 lime (or ¼ cup fresh lime juice in the bottle)

SRIRACHA SAUCE
INGREDIENTS:
1/3 cup mayo
4 tbsp. sriracha
6 tbsp. ketchup
1 tbsp. granulated sugar

READY, SET GO:

  1. Pre-heat 2 tbsp. canola oil in skillet over medium heat
  2. Add red bell peppers, red onions, corn, sea salt, black pepper, and crushed garlic to skillet and allow to saute for 1-2 minutes, stir then add the cilantro and allow to continue sauteing for 30-40 seconds to make the veggie mixture, remove from heat and allow to cool
  3. In a separate bowl add the crab meat, crushed crackers, worcestershire, Dijon mustard, Mayo, Juice of one lime and the veggie mixture, fold together gently so you do not break the crab meat up too much, then add beaten eggs at end and fold together to make the crab mixture
  4. Add canola oil to skillet pan about quarter the way up and pre-heat to medium high
  5. Use large spoon or small ice cream scooper to measure out portions of the crab mixture and use your hands to roll into balls
  6. Turn skillet heat down to medium and carefully put each crab ball in the skillet, I used a long spoon to put them in so I would not burn my fingers, allow to cook 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown
  7. LET’S MAKE THE SRIRACHA DIPPIN SAUCE:  Add all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until incorporated
  8. ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!
