Seafood...because I want it :o)

Quick Seafood Lasagna Roll-ups (recipe given by Becky)

8 dry lasagna noodles
16 oz. imitation crab meat
1 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
3 large egg whites
1 Tbsp. dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. oregano
1 jar Italian tomato sauce
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese

Boil noodles as direction on package. Rinse in cold water and drain well. In a large bowl, combine next seven ingredients with a fork. Spread slightly less than 1/3 cup filling on the upper one-third of each noodle. Roll tightly and place seam down in a 9-inch baking pan. Pour tomato sauce over roll-ups. Cover and bake at 375 degrees F for 30 min. Remove from oven and sprinkle with grated cheese.

Crabby Crab Cakes
1 lb crab meat
1 egg, beaten (NO substitute...I tried once)
1 T dijon mustard
2 T flour, more for dredging
2 T extra virgin olive oil
4 T butter (Smart Balance is a good subsitute)
Dash of hot sauce (optional)

Carefully combine crab, egg, mustard, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and 2 T flour.
Cover and place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into patties. Place on wax paper or plastic wrap lined plate and cover with plastic wrap. Chill in fridge for 30 minutes-24 hours OR freeze for 15 minutes.
Put flour for dredging into a bowl. Then begin melting the butter in a skillet on medium heat. After butter melts, dredge crab cake in flour, place in skillet...repeat until all 4 cakes are in skillet. Then turn heat to medium-high. Cook 5-8 minutes for first side and slightly less for the other side.

Easy Tartar Sauce
1/2 c mayo
1/3 c dill relish
1/4 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper.

Combine ingredients & chill. Other optional items that can be included....a "glob" of sweet relish, 1 or 2 roasted red pepper slices-finely chopped, hot sauce, and on & on. The basic recipe is great though.
