Appetizers > Seafood/Fish

1 lb. crab meat, finely chopped
1/2 c. canned water chestnuts, finely chopped
1/2 c. whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. dried mustard
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely minced
1/4 c. scallions (use white and green portions), finely chopped
1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, finely minced
4 egg whites
2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
2 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/2 c. whole wheat bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 F. Mix together all the ingredients – except the final 1/2 cup of bread crumbs – until well blended. Form into 1-inch balls and roll in the bread crumbs. On a lightly oiled baking sheet, bake for 12-15 minutes or until crab balls are crisp and golden brown. Serve with tamari sauce or a mustard dip.
