Welcome to the Feast of the Seven Fishes, hosted by Karen of Karen’s Kitchen’s Stories for today's Fish Friday Foodies. We were invited to make a dish that would fit into any of the five fish related courses (appetizer / snack, seafood salad, meaty fish grilled / broiled, fish in pasta, or fish stew). Check out all of the different contributions below:

These were so easy to throw together and really light and refreshing! I loved the combination of the crunchy fresh cucumber with the creamy avocado and the chunks of crab. I could see poached shrimp being an excellent seafood choice for these as well. I will definitely remember to pull this one out if I need a quick, pretty, tasty appetizer at a future event. Line up a platter with cucumber slices and you'll be serving these beautiful bites just moments later.

Crab Bites adapted from Betty Crocker

1 ripe avocado, pitted
3 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 teaspoons lime juice
Dash of salt and pepper
2 large cucumbers, cut into 3/8-inch slices (24 slices)
1 package (8 oz) refrigerated flake-style imitation crabmeat


  1. Combine the avocado, mayonnaise, and lime juice in a small bowl. Mash with a fork until fairly smooth in consistency (you can use a blender or food processor if you prefer a very smooth consistency). Add several shakes each of salt and pepper, stir, taste and adjust seasoning until it reaches desired flavor.
  2. Layer sliced cucumbers over a serving tray or plate. Spread a little bit of the avocado mixture over each, then top with a chunk of the crabmeat (rough chop the crab into about 1/2" pieces, or pull a piece off the size you want to top each cucumber round).
  3. Serve immediately.


  1. These look so festive and fancy, even though I think they would be quick to make. Can't wait to try them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are perfect for all the gluten-free party attendees as well! A tasty refreshing nibble.

  3. These look wonderful and I love the idea of using cucumbers instead of crackers! Perfect little appetizer before dinner.

  4. Perfect last minute appetizer using items that are in your kitchen when unexpected guests arrive. Thanks for the great idea.

  5. Love how easy these are, a fun and quick idea
