This recipe calls for imitation crab, which is actually surimi, a blend of different types of fish made to resemble the flavor of crab. I use it often. The lower cost is the main reason, but it really does taste good. Caution: If you have a shellfish allergy, you may have a reaction to imitation crab.
8 oz. imitation crab, cut into 1/2 in. pieces 1/2 c. reduced-fat mayonnaise 1 red bell pepper, diced 1 small onion, minced 1 1/4 c. reduced-fat, shredded Monterey Jack cheese 2 t. dried oregano 3 pita breads, separated into 6 rounds Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
In a bowl, mix imitation crab, mayonnaise, pepper, onion, Monterey Jack Cheese, and oregano, until well blended. Spread one-sixth of mixture on inner, rough side of each pita. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Broil for 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts and mixture is bubbly.
