So for any of you Harris Teeter shoppers – we live by “what’s on sale” via their weekly VIC email promotion. This week, I noticed their crab meat was on sale – 16 oz for $11.99 so i figured we should do something with it. But, I have to admit, I’m very picky when it comes to seafood. Usually when I say I like Crab – what i really mean is: I like crabcakes.
With some left over frozen shrimp from last weeks VIC special (buy 1 get 2 free!) – we looked for a recipe that involved crab meat and shrimp. A fav recipe site of our is EatingWell.com (sign up for an account for free to save your recipes!) – and we found this Seafood Chowder Casserole.
If you click on the link – you’ll find the recipe calls for white fish, shrimp and crab meat – but again, I’m picky and we left out the white fish and added extra crab meat.
I’m eating it for lunch at this very moment – so it heats up surprisingly well for seafood. The cheese and breadcrumbs really bring it together for the casserole feel, and the portion is pretty decent since it includes 2 types of fish and a potato. If you aren’t familiar with clam juice – look for it where you’d find the canned meat (like tunafish) at your grocery store. We got ours for under $3. To save more – we just used dried dill instead of fresh. Also – we cut this recipe in half since it serves 8! So that helps, too.
It comes in a 377 calories if you make it the way the recipe goes, so be sure to account for the changes you make!
All in all, pretty decent meal. Whether it goes or not, I added a little hot sauce to spice it up. The only thing that semi-stinks is literally, it smells fishy! Hard to avoid. So watch out if you are bringing this to work with you…although, its pretty yummy so who cares what the co-workers think! 🙂
