Lent - Crab Wheels

This recipe calls for imitation crab, which is actually surimi, a blend of different types of fish made to resemble the flavor of crab. I use it often. The lower cost is the main reason, but it really does taste good. Caution: If you have a shellfish allergy, you may have a reaction to imitation crab.

8 oz. imitation crab, cut into 1/2 in. pieces
1/2 c. reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 small onion, minced
1 1/4 c. reduced-fat, shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 t. dried oregano
3 pita breads, separated into 6 rounds
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In a bowl, mix imitation crab, mayonnaise, pepper, onion, Monterey Jack Cheese, and oregano, until well blended.
Spread one-sixth of mixture on inner, rough side of each pita.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Broil for 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts and mixture is bubbly.

YIELD: 6 servings
