Servings: 6 As an appetizer
- 1 pkg Unflavoured gelatin
- ¼ cup Dry white wine
- 1 can Crab meat drained, flaked
- 1 can Small shrimp drained and finely chopped

Spray a 2 cup mold or bowl with a bit of pan spray, use a paper towel to wipe it down to leave a thin, smooth coating of oil.
Sprinkle gelatin over wine, allow to absorb for at least 5 minutes while you prepare the other ingredients.
In a medium sized bowl, combine remaining ingredients, aside from salt and pepper.
Once everything else it mixed, microwave the gelatin in 10 second increments until it’s completely liquid. Stir gelatin into the bowl of combined ingredients.
Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and spoon into prepared mold.
Chill until set, about 3 hours.
Unmold onto serving plate and serve surrounded by crackers and/or cucumber slices.
