This delightful bite features a creamy crab filling enclosed in crunchy phyllo. Eat one in the kitchen before you put them out – you won't get a chance once your guests have discovered them.

  • Portion size 35 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg frozen crabmeat thawed
  • 1 pkg cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup diced sweet red pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pitted oil-cured black olives
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 7 sheets phyllo pastry

Method

Place crabmeat in sieve; pick through to remove any cartilage. Press firmly to remove liquid. Transfer to large bowl; stir in cream cheese, red pepper, chives, olives, sour cream and lemon rind.

Keeping remainder covered with damp towel to prevent drying out, place 1 sheet of the phyllo on work surface. Cut lengthwise into five 2 1/2-inch (6 cm) wide strips.

Brush each strip with some of the butter; place heaping teaspoonful (5 mL) of filling about 1/2 inch (1 cm) from 1 short edge of each strip. Fold short edge over filling to meet long edge and form triangle; fold triangle up. Continue folding sideways and upward to end of strip; press flap to seal.

Working quickly, repeat with remaining phyllo and filling. Brush both sides of triangles with remaining butter. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and freeze for up to 2 weeks. Bake frozen, adding 2 minutes to baking time.)

Bake on parchment paper–lined or greased rimmed baking sheet in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
