This recipe comes from a dear acquaintance in the State of Washington. Knowing the level of appreciation Deane and Reita have for pairing fine food and wine I am sure this is a receipe that will become a favorite of mine and yours. I am happy to share it with you.
AVOCADOS STUFFED WITH CRAB
1 can (6 ounces) or fresh crabmeat drained, flaked and cartilage removed
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon finely chopped green onions
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon seafood seasoning ( I use Johnny’s)
1/8 teaspoon Paprika
1 medium ripe avocado, halved and pitted
In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Spoon onto the avocado halves and serve.
This recipe is for two people and makes only two servings. But, you can easily adjust to however many you want .It makes an excellent salad. Also, I have found that the little 6 ounce cans of crab work just as easy as the fresh crab and are more convenient.
