Once cooled, rounds of melted Parmesan cheese crisp like potato chips. You can prepare the crab mixture and salsa a couple of hours before serving; refrigerate until you're ready to assemble the cocktails.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare crab mixture, combine first 13 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add crabmeat; toss gently to coat. Cover and chill until ready to use.

Step 2

To prepare salsa, combine pineapple, mango, bell pepper, and chives; cover and chill until ready to use.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 4

To prepare chips, spread 1 tablespoon cheese into a 3-inch circle on a baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining 1 tablespoon cheese, leaving at least 2 inches between circles. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes or until cheese begins to brown. Remove pan from oven; carefully lift chips from pan with a spatula, and place on a wire rack. Cool completely.

Step 5

Spoon 1/2 cup crab mixture into each of 2 martini glasses or small bowls; top each serving with 2 tablespoons salsa and 1 chip. Serve immediately.

I made this for our anniversary dinner and it was a hit. My husband loved the entire meal but kept talking about the appetizer, especially the parmesan crisps. Said we need to throw a dinner party, didn't know I could cook this great!

Made to recipe and served in margarita glasses. The parmesan crisps and presentation definitely made this suitable for a special dinner for two. Recommend highly.
