SAILING SARDINE SNACKS (not recommended for sailors who get seasick–however a hearty snack with beer
1 Box Rye Ritz Crackers
1 Tub of 3 Month Old Cave Aged Bleu Cheese
1 Red Onion
1 Can of Sardines
If you are underway at sea you might want to put these snacks in a plastic tub for quick sealing.
1. Dice the onions pretty fine. (I had difficulty trying to prepare this down below while at sea. It’s hot down below
and we were taking some pretty good rolls on the boat. (if you know what I mean).
2. Place bits of sardines on the cracker, top it with the bleu cheese, then red onion on top of the bleu cheese.
This particular recipe was used to test a new sailors gut strength, while pitching and yawing on the ocean.
We prefer to dine on this snack inside a safe, calm bay or harbor. At a picnic or camping site it is best for everyone
to participate in this snack for foul breaths sake. Arrgh!
CRAB STUFFED CUCUMBER
I have to admit this recipe is a little more docile, yet it blends with the Sardine snacks fairly well. It makes a nice
lunch, especially when you are underway at sea or camping or picnicing on land.
1/2 Cup Crabmeat (we prefer the real deal, yet imitation can be tasty as well)
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1 teaspoon celery seed
4 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worectershire sauce
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 to 2 Tablespoons chili sauce
Wash and pare cucumber. Cut lengthwise down center and remove seeds.
Chill, wrapped in wax paper. Mix together remaining ingredients and chill.
When ready to serve, fill cucumber with crab mixture. Delicious as a lite lunch. (This also makes a great
crab dip, scooped with doritos).
