Snow crab and avocado in a mayonnaise based dressing.
The season for snow crabs goes from April until October, but the best period is April to May. Let's enjoy Spring with this delicious shellfish.
|3 tbsp||mayonnaise||45 mL|
|1 tsp||ketchup||5 mL|
|2 tsp||lemon juice, freshly squeezed|
|10 drops||Tabasco sauce|
|1/4 tsp||paprika||1 g|
|1/4 stalk||celery, cut into very small dices||18 g|
|1/4||green peppers, cut into very small dices||40 g|
|1/4||Boston lettuce||50 g|
|1||avocados, cut in half||170 g|
|1||snow crab legs, cooked, shelled||130 g|
|1/2 tbsp||Cognac [optional]||8 mL|
- In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup and lemon juice. Add the Tabasco sauce, paprika, a little salt and Cognac (optional).
- Cut the celery and pepper into very small dices (about 3 mm), then add them to the bowl. Set aside.
- Prepare the lettuce leaves and place them on individual serving plates.
- Cut the avocados in half and remove the stone, then remove the skin paying attention to keep the avocados intact. To avoid tipping, you may cut off a small slice from the rounded skin side. Place one avocado half on each plate, on top of the lettuce leaves.
- Shell the cooked crab meat, using a nutcracker, then add it to the bowl. Toss gently and spoon out portions for the top of each avocado half. Serve.

Subbed in some crab sticks I had left over and added a bit more tabasco than indicated. Also made some interesting sandwiches!
