Spicy Crab & Avocado Salad

More times than not, I’ve got a lot to say about everything. And when it comes to food– fuggedaboutit!

But then there are times when I take a bite of something and there are really just no words needed. Like with this Spicy Crab and Avocado Salad. MMMMMMM!!!!!!

Spicy Crab & Avocado Salad

TONS of sweet lump crab meat, paired with the creaminess of avocado, a slight crunch from the serranos and a kick of spice. Perfection!

Okay, okay. Maybe I do have a few words but trust me, one bite and you’ll know exactly what I mean.

By the way, in case you’re wondering–Why do I call this a “crab salad”? Well…the same reason why they call chicken salad, “chicken salad”. And yes, I may be trying to avert the question. :)

Laters!

  1. Gosh that looks good – annoyingly crab is rather expensive in Hanoi. It is about 20 dollars for one crab which considering how much meat one gets is rather a lot….

    • This time around I used lump crab meat from Costco that they sell in tubs for about $15/lb. I was hesitant when I first tried it but found it was really delish! If you’ve got the patience, you can def steam/boil the crabs and extract the meat fresh. :)

  2. Hi,
    I’m an bayarea transplant now living in NYC. I’ll be visiting San Diego next week any insights on great places to eat?

    Thanks.
