Tired of the same keto appetizers for your parties? Wow your guests with this ketofied version of an easy crab sushi bake.

With so many ingredients being a keto-staple item, this dish is easy to whip up most any night of the week.
The incredibly versatile cauliflower. For this recipe I use cauliflower rice to replace the traditional rice found in sushi. By adding some cream cheese, the cauliflower sticks together like sticky rice and does a great job substituting for the job. If you love a lot of "rice" in your sushi or sushi bakes, then I'd recommend that you double the rice ingredients in this recipe and go from there.
This recipe is EASY. Don't be intimidated by the layers and the fancy presentation. There's nothing inherently hard about mixing the ingredients or frying an omelet. Once you get all your ingredients together and have your layers prepped and ready, the task of layering and putting together this dish is super simple. I love dishes that look like I spent all day making them, LOL. We eat with our eyes first, friends!
Real Crab Meat is a MUST
Don't skimp here my keto friends. Most sushi bakes (non-keto) you see online use imitation crab instead of fresh crab meat. As a fully keto-approved recipe, there is no substitution here unfortunately. Imitation crab meat is generally made from pollock fish that has been processed, minced and put together using additives and other ingredients. Imitation crab contains potato starches to bind the minced pollock as well as sugar and vegetable oils to help extend its shelf life—all 3 ingredients that are a huge NO in the keto diet world. Real crab meat also contains for nutrients like vitamin B12, zinc, selenium and omega-3 fatty acids. Score for the healthy fats.
Though I haven't tried it, I'm think this may work out great with minced lobster or shrimp if you don't like crab. Either way, this dip is sure to please. ENJOY!
