Ingredients

  • 1 lb. petite/ creamer purple potatoes
  • 250 g drained weight, crab meat, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons finely diced yellow pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons finely sliced fresh chives

Preparation

  1. In a large saucepan, cover potatoes with water. Boil for 12 -15 minutes, until potatoes are easily pierced with a sharp knife.  Drain and cool to handle.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare filling. In a mixing bowl combine crab meat, peppers, chives, mayonnaise, lemon juice and pepper sauce.  Do not overmix to keep mixture light.
