Delicious Crab Nori Rolls

(photo from media.photobucket.com)

I was at a 40th party this weekend for my friend Nicola, and we all enjoyed some wonderful food and cocktails.  My friend Mary-Margaret prepared these amazingly tasteful rolls that everybody enjoyed.  The recipe is from the G.I. Diet Cookbook, with a little input from Mary-Margaret!

This could also be a great sandwich filler -- wrap it in lettuce leaves if you are very concerned about complex carbs -- or even to have on top of a tossed spinach salad with a rice vinegar/ orange/ sesame dressing.  Click after the jump for full recipe.

from the G.I. Diet Cookbook 

2 tbsp light mayo
1 tbsp prepared horseradish
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp grated lime zest
Pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper

2 cups of crab meat
1 avocado chopped
1/2 red pepper seeded and diced
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tbsp fresh mint
6 sheets toasted nori

1. In a large bowl, whisk mayonnaise, horseradish, msutard, lime juice and zest, salt and pepper. Fold in crabmeat, avocado, red pepper, green ionions, cilantro and mint until well combined.
2. Using scissors, cut nori sheets into quarters. On each quarter, place a teaspoonful of filling close to a corner. Fold that corner over, then roll into a cone. Seal overlapping sides with a few drops of water.

Having just made this dish, I have a couple notes.
-- Cut up extra nori. You will need to make a sample or two to get into rolling the cone.
-- I used imitation crab meat -- Alaskan pollock flavoured as crabmeat and it worked well. It also kept costs down considerably.
-- Keep a little bowl of water beside you to seal the rolled cones.
