  1. Directions To prepare the meatballs, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, except for the canola oil. Take small amounts of the mixture and roll it between your palms to create one inch meatballs. It may be easier to make the balls, if your palms are coated with oil. Warm a tablespoon of oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. You can saute a few meatballs at a time, or saute them one at a time, whatever you are comfortable with. Keep turning them till they are a deep brown and cooked through, which should take about 4 to 5 minutes. Use paper towels to soak up the excess oil. Serve with dip of your choice. Mini Crab Cakes Ingredients 1 (8 oz) fresh lump crabmeat, drained 2 large eggs 3 whole grain white bread slices 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce ⅓ cup light mayonnaise 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning 3 green onions, thinly sliced Salt to taste Vegetable cooking spray lemon slices Garlic-Chive Sauce Directions Check the crabmeat for bits of shell. Tear the bread slices into small pieces and put in blender/food processor, until you have 1½ cups of fine crumbs. Combine the mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce and onion in a bowl, and then add the breadcrumbs, crabmeat and salt to it. Separate the mixture into 16 portions, and form each portion into a cake. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and cook a few cakes at a time, for about 4 minutes on each side. Cook on medium-low heat till the cakes are golden brown and cooked through. Garnish with lemon slices and serve with Garlic-Chive Sauce. Pineapple Shrimp Ingredients 12 jumbo shrimp, deveined 12 wooden toothpicks ¼ fresh/canned pineapple cut into bite sized chunks Directions Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat the skillet. Push a piece of pineapple into the natural curve of the shrimp, and pass a toothpick through both to secure. After getting all 12 shrimps ready, put them in batches on the hot pan, and cook on both sides for about 3 minutes each. Your shrimp should turn opaque and firm. Remove and serve.
