Crab meat is low in saturated fat and in calories and has many nutrition benefits for heart-conscious people. It gives you omega-3 fats and is rich in B vitamins and many minerals, particularly potassium, zinc, iodine and phosphorus. An entree-size portion of crab (100 g) has only 130 calories.
Sesame shrimp and crab toast variations: For five-spice shrimp and water chestnut toast, omit the crab meat and use 170 g shrimp instead of 80 g. Season the mixture with 1⁄4 teaspoon five-spice powder instead of the cayenne pepper and lemon rind. Instead of the red pepper, stir in 6 water chestnuts, very finely chopped, and 4 teaspoons chopped fresh coriander.
