Crab (imitation, frozen, canned or fresh), mixed with crunchy peppers and subtle chives on top of petite purple potatoes make a delicious and colorful appetizer where the ingredients shine!


  • 1 lb. petite/ creamer purple potatoes
  • 250 g drained weight, crab meat, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons finely diced yellow pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons finely sliced fresh chives
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Fresh chive sprigs & lemon slice to garnish
  • Old Bay or similar seasoned salt to garnish, if desired

Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 15min

  1. In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with water. Boil for 12 -15 minutes, until potatoes are easily pierced with a sharp knife.  Drain and cool to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare filling. In a mixing bowl combine crab meat, peppers, chives, mayonnaise, lemon juice and pepper sauce.  Do not overmix to keep mixture light.
  3. Cut each potato in half and with a small teaspoon carefully scoop out a hollow in each half.
  4. Evenly fill potato halves with crab mixture and garnish with lemon rind, chive springs and a pinch of seasoned salt, if desired.


Potatoes can be filled up to 2 hours and covered with plastic wrap before serving.
