Crunchy chicory boats 3 x different: with a delicious surimi crab salad, with egg mousse and/or shrimp flavored in a vinaigrette. Great appetizers, try them yourself!
Still looking for a nice appetizer? I even have three recipes for you. All three are chicory boats, but all with a different fill. And not only are they very tasty, it also looks super-festive. No wonder that chicory snacks gain popularity. Because you use the chicory as a bowl for your stuff you can eat that food without getting your fingers dirty, finger food at its best!
The first chicory boats are filled with a delicious surimi crab salad, whereas the sweet of the crab with the crunchy cucumber and the delicious spicy dressing make this a party on it’s own. The second chicory bowls are filled with egg mousse, slightly sweet and very delicious. Egg and chicory have been a golden combination for years with us in my family.
And lastly, the chicory leaf is filled with shrimps, and also slightly sweet, marinated in a spicy vinaigrette. Sounds okay? And of course you don’t have to make them all. It’s enough to choose one or two. But whoever you choose, for sure you will love them.
- The filling of the chicory boast can be prepared a few hours in advance. After making it, put them in a bowl and cover it. Store the filling up for use in the fridge.
- The chicory boats / leafs are also well prepared in advance. Tear a leaf of the stalk and cut off the ugly part. Wash and dry them or let them leak on some kitchen paper. Put them in a sack with a damp kitchen paper and close the bag (make sure the leaves are not crushed). Store in the refrigerator This way you can keep them beautiful for an hour or four.
