Easy Seafood Cracker Spread

The other day when out shopping, we stopped at one of  our favorite seafood restaurants for a nice dinner before heading home. Upon bringing our cold brews to quench our thirst, she also brought a plate of crackers and a spread to top them with which we never had been given there before. Of course I had to ask what it was and she told me it was a fish spread. Next question was what was in it, expecting the answer to be “Well I can’t give out the the ingredients” she surprised me by telling us exactly what was in it. I told her about our site and that I wanted to try to copy it at home so I could share it with you because it was so tasty. The restaurants version had two different kinds of fish in it and not having any on hand, I made my version with some crab meat I had tucked in my freezer. We told her how much we enjoyed it and when we asked for the tab, she surprised us again by bring us a take-out container with 2 more cups of the spread along with extra crackers. First time we ever had a waitress tip us and it was happily taken home for another treat! Gotta love it!!!!

Easy and Tasty!

  1. Combine the softened cream cheese with the seasoning and seafood of your choice.

Great for those football parties with some nice cold brew to wash them down. This dip should not be kept too long in the frig, so only make what you think you can eat within a day or two. Enjoy…… It’s OBIF!

Fried Wontons With Sausage And Shrimp

These are tasty little tidbits that would go great for your next football party, a little time consuming but well worth it! My body is not overly fond of MSG, so I tend to stay away from Chinese restaurants making my own egg rolls, pepper steak and chow mein. About the only thing I use MSG in, is in my sausage gravy for our biscuits and for some reason that doesn’t effect my tummy as some restaurant foods, maybe I don’t use as much as they do to enhance the flavors! This recipe does not call for MSG, so I’m all for it, especially with using our own ground pork!



Fried Wontons With Sausage And Shrimp
  • 16 oz pkg wonton wrappers
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • ½ lb fresh shrimp, cleaned and minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp minced scallions with the green
  • 1-1/2 teas salt (optional as I find the soy sauce is enough salt)
  • 1 tbsp white wine
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 teas ginger powder
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 6 peeled water chestnuts, chopped small
  • Beaten egg for sealing
  • Oil for frying
  1. Combine the ground pork with the next 10 ingredients; mix well, this takes a little time using the ground pork.
  2. Working in batches that will suit your deep fryer without overcrowding, place one teaspoon of the mixture in the middle of each wonton wrapper; lightly moisten edges with beaten egg.
  3. Fold corner to corner to make a triangle and pinch together the widest two bottom corners.
  4. Have oil heated to 375 degrees and deep-fry in batches until golden brown.
  5. Drain on paper towels.
  6. * If you have left-over wrappers, slice them in strips and deep-fry for a crispy treat for salads or chow mein.
  7. ** Left-over water chestnuts can be wrapped in bacon and baked for another delicious treat to enjoy with the wontons.


Serve with sweet and sour sauce and enjoy!
