Preparation : 15 min
280 calories/serving


3 tbsp mayonnaise 40 g
1 tsp ketchup 5 g
2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon
10 drops Tabasco sauce 0.63 mL
1/4 tsp paprika 1 g
1/2 tbsp Cognac, or brandy [optional] 8 mL
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, or Alaskan crab, shelled 130 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g


  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, ketchup and lemon juice. Add the Tabasco sauce, paprika, a little salt and Cognac (optional).
  2. Cut the celery and pepper into very small dices (about 3 mm), then add them to the bowl. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the lettuce leaves and place them on individual serving plates.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
