This holiday season, I’m a mama on a mission when it comes to whipping up delicious bite sized treats in my kitchen! While I enjoy experimenting with flavors all year long, the holidays are my favorite time to mix things up and think outside the box. I love nothing more than surprising my party guests with unexpected flavor combinations that make the holidays more delicious in a slightly unique way. This year, pomegranate is pretty much in everything I make so when I recently decided to whip up some easy, crab-filled wonton cups I of course wanted to give them a holiday makeover by including my beloved pomegranate. With just a few simple ingredients and a little creativity I was able to create a party-guest-pleasing, finger-food-perfect dish of Holiday Crab and Pomegranate Wonton Cups that are sure to shine at all my festive gatherings!
These easy to make appetizers boast a festive and fabulous twist that makes them perfectly delicious for all my holiday gatherings and since I just happened to grow up on the coast, the addition of Louis Kemp® Crab Delights® Flake Style is an absolute must when entertaining my seafood loving family!

(Makes 24 Holiday Crab and Pomegranate Wonton Cups)
1 and 1/2 Packages of Louis Kemp Crab Delights Flake Style
1 Large Pomegranage

How to Make It
This easy party appetizer looks crazy impressive but it’s really oh, so easy to make and the best part is, you can whip up this festive finger-food in less than thirty minutes! To start, I laid my wonton wrappers out on the counter and cut the edges of off them.
Then I pushed my wonton wrappers down into the spaces of my mini-cupcake tins, sprayed them with cooking spray and popped them into the oven at 350 degrees for about seven minutes, just long enough for them to crisp up and hold their shape!
Once I had cooked my wonton wrappers into the perfect bite-sized cups, I set them aside and got to work on my delicious Crab Delights filling!
In a large bowl, I placed my Louis Kemp Crab Delights that are made with premium Wild Alaskan Pollock fillets, my oranges (cut into half pieces), 1/2 of the pomegranate arils, walnuts, cilantro, yogurt and lemon juice.
After gently stirring all my ingredients together, I had a delicious, flavorful crab salad concoction that boasted the unmatched taste of imitation crab meat that is a good source of protein and naturally low in calories and cholesterol paired with the festive flavors (and colors) or oranges, pomegranate arils and walnuts. By mixing it all together with my yogurt, my mixture also had a creamy consistency that was perfect for using to fill my wonton cups!
As soon as my crab, pomegranate arils, oranges, walnuts, cilantro and yogurt were mixed together perfectly, I used a small spoon to scoop the Crab Delights mixture into each of my wonton cups, filling it to the very top so that my guests were insured amazing bursts of flavor with each bite.
After filling all my wonton cups with my tasty mixture that boasted the flavor of Louis Kemp Crab Delights, I sprinkled a few pomegranate arils on the top and added a cilantro leaf to the top of each cup to give my Holiday Crab and Pomegranate Wonton Cups a festive look and an extra layer of flavor that was sure to thrill my guests.
With my perfect holiday finger-food ready to serve, I set up my table with a festive place mat and a few holiday decorations and set my festive creation right in the middle.
In less than thirty minutes, I had been able to create a tasty and impressively cute holiday finger food that is sure to be a hit at all my seasonal gatherings. Not only are these delicious little morsels easy to eat while spending time with family and friends but each one delivers a flavor explosion that starts with the delicious taste of Louis Kemp Crab Delights and ends with a pop of pomegranate aril that is sure to thrill everyone who comes through my home!
