  4. Serve piled high on a plate.

Scary Monster Mash

  4. Slice strips off the scallions and then place them in a bowl of cold water to help them curl.
  5. When ready invert the tin onto a serving platter and garnish with the scallion curls.

As Halloween it is all about effect and the more spiders or worms you can strategically place around the edge of the plate or on the table the better your Halloween feast will look. Just think scary food that tastes great and then enjoy.
