Sandwiches come to rescue the situation and satisfy your cravings; You can sup up any simple sandwich to become a consistent delicious meal. Not just that, it’s a pleasure to the eye also with all these colors blend.
All you need is the right and a smarter choice of pairing your sandwich ingredients. Today’s i third option of sandwich makeover is crab and orange. You will need (yields two sandwiches):
- 8-10 crab sticks shredded
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 small orange
- rocket leaves (a bunch of 14-16 leaves)
- capers (around 1 tbsp) – optional
- bread of your choice (mine is multi cereal bun)
- mayo citrus dressing
Start with a coat of the dressing on the bun, actually the two halves of the bun, this way the bread absorb the dressing and it won’t fall off making a mess while eating. To prepare this sauce mix:
- juice of a lemon
- 2 tbsp juice of orange (half an orange almost)

An utterly craveable sandwich, for a NO cook day, doesn’t require skills and the best part it’s ready in less than 10 mns. So if you feel like treating yourself effortlessly, enjoy this elegant sandwich.
To make 2 sandwiches you will need:
- 6 slices of bread (could be toasted)
- 150g thin slices smoked salmon
- 100g imitation crab meat, shredded
- 1 medium avocado pitted and mashed
- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp capers
- 1 1/2 tbsp cream cheese
- 3-4 roman lettuce leaves
Start by spreading on the first layer of bread the mashed avocado and lemon, then a layer of the shredded crab. Cover with a second layer of bread, spread cream cheese, lay thin slices of smoked salmon, a layer of lettuce and sprinkle some capers. Top it with the third layer of bread and serve.
You can use toasted bread or simply sliced from the loaf. Personally i like it toasted, if you do then you need to let it cool before making the sandwich, if the bread is hot, it might change the taste of the ingredients.
If you like onion, you can add couple of rondelles, or maybe substitute lettuce with rocket leaves. It’s a versatile sandwich, you can add whatever you like to pair with crab and salmon.
I am sure only by looking at the pictures your mouth is already watering. Wait until you try it, you will fall for it.

Apples and crabs are Nady’s most liked when it comes to fruits or shower. What a combo to wow Nady! He was really fascinated with this fun snack. Is this real?
Very easy and simple to do. You only need a red apple to create this cool crab:
Cut two sides of the apple half centimeter from the center. Slice one side in 8 wedges to create the legs. Cut the two sides of the center, disregarding the seeds.
Put them on top of each other to cut symmetrical triangles to create the claws. Then place the other half we cut in the beginning to make the body.
With edible paint make the eyes to look more realistic. If you don’t have paint, simple use the seeds!
Such a cute and delicious crab fruit!
I bet your kids will have a big smile on their little faces when they get such snack! Bon appetit mon amour 🙂
