Lunchbox extravaganza pt. 4: Wasabi and crabstick wrap

Crabstick is one of those ingredients I’ve always been a bit sceptical to, but still eaten in great amounts. I don’t really want to think much about what goes in them, so I won’t elaborate more on it here. What is clear is that they are a cheap, easy and tasty way of getting a bit of omega 3 in your diet, and I quite like their sweet, mild flavour. Since they are cooked they are also safe for sandwiches. What’s more, when they are mixed into a wrap together with a dollop of creme fraiche, some wasabi, peanuts, avocado, coriander and cucumber, topped off with crispy lettuce, they become like a hybrid sushi/Skagen sandwich, and are delicious. Also very healthy. So for my latest lunchbox revelation, you’ll need:

  • Crabstick (around 8 should suffice)
  • 1 dollop Creme fraiche
  • Fresh, chopped coriander
  • Cucumber, cut into long strips
  • Lettuce
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Wasabi paste (to taste)
  • Lemon or lime juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • Wraps
.
Start by cutting the crabstick into thin slices. This is easily done by pressing each stick between your fingers, and then pulling them apart one by one. Put into a bowl, and mix together with the avocado, creme fraiche, wasabi (but be careful and don’t add too much!), lemon juice and cucumber. When mixed, put a large tablespoon onto a wrap, top off with crushed peanuts, some lettuce and cucumber, a bit of salt and pepper, and an extra squirt lime/lemon juice. Fold tightly together like an envelope roll, and place in a well-sealed food container which will hold it in place until you need to eat it. If it is hot and your avocado is on the brink of over-maturing, don’t let the wrap sit in your bag and wait all day, for it can become a bit funny in the sun. Else you will have a filling and tasty treat waiting for you.
