Low Carb Crab Crackslaw for Seafood Lovers

Cut the carbs in your diet by using seafood and low carb ingredients to make a tasty meal. This crab crackslaw recipe features crab instead of the beef used in the original recipe.

This is a rich, spicy recipe so the crab flavor is not so strong but that is what we are aiming for here, a dish with a hint of seafood flavor. And lots of typical crackslaw flavor.

Crab is recommended if you are low-carbing but if you want to replace the crab with crabsticks or imitation crab watch out, because those do contain carbs and sometimes sugars which you obviously want to avoid when making low carb crab crackslaw.

Canned crab is an economical alternative to fresh crab, so perhaps that would be the best choice, since the spicy flavors mask some of the crab flavor anyway.

This crab crackslaw makes a great dinner and you can adjust the spiciness and/or sweetness however you wish, since you are making it yourself. Double up on the amounts and have some for lunch the following day.

Crab crackslaw microwaves well too so just pop it in the microwave for a couple of minutes and you will able to enjoy it 2 days in a row. When microwaving, a good tip is to arrange the food in the shape of a ring (so move it out of the center) and that way it cooks more evenly.


Recipe for Crab Crackslaw
Swapping the beef for crab gives you the same great dish but with fewer calories and a fishy flavor. This is lighter and more fragrant than the original dish and perfect if you wish to make a low carb meal with seafood flavor.
