Krab and avocado salad


My friends Krystal and Sammy served a krab salad at their housewarming bbq a couple of years ago, and I couldn’t stop eating it.  This is my interpretation of it, although I would love to get the real recipe from Sammy’s mom!

If you’ve never bought imitation crab meat before, you can find it at the grocery store near the smoked salmon.

Krab and Avocado Salad

8 oz imitation crab meat (“krab”)
1 avocado, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 of a red onion, diced
1/3 c cilantro, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno, quartered and then finely sliced
2 limes, juiced
kosher salt
black pepper
tortilla chips or tortillas for serving

Combine the avocado, onion, cilantro, and jalapeno in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then add the lime juice.

Shred or chop the krab meat into large chunks.

Add to the vegetables and gently combine. You can eat this immediately, or let the flavors blend in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Serve on warm corn tortillas or with tortilla chips.
