6 slices brioche or challah bread

2 (7-ounce) cans lump crabmeat

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon hot sauce

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons chives, chopped

Pinch salt

Chives, for garnish


Special equipment:
1 1/2 or 2-inch biscuit cutter
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lay out the bread slices and, using the biscuit cutter, punch out 5 bread rounds per slice. Place the rounds on a baking sheet and place the sheet in the top half of the oven for 3 minutes, until the rounds are lightly toasted. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  3. Drain the crabmeat well and place it in a mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, cumin, hot sauce, lime juice, chives and salt and mix well. Mound the crab mix onto the bread rounds by the teaspoonful and garnish with a piece of chive.
