1 teaspoon snipped fresh chives
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon mint leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
3 oz shrimp, pre-cooked and coarsely chopped
2 oz crabmeat, or mock crab if preferred
1/3 cup plum tomatoes, chopped
3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped

Low Carb Canape Biscuits:

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups + 1 tablespoon Atkins baking mix
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold shortening
2/3 cup cold whole milk

First - Seafood Topping:
