Lump Crab Avocado Salad

Lump Crab Avocado Salad Recipe

This is the lump crabmeat I am using for this recipe. It is already cooked and packed in the pasteurised form. You can use any favourite brand of crabmeat – it should also be of the best quality (fresh, clean, not fishy) so that it can carry this dish well. Instead of lump crab, you can also use other cuts – such as claw meat or flaky crabmeat.

(A) Lump Crab Avocado Salad

  • 50g quality cooked lump crab meat
  • half avocado flesh cubed
  • 1 tbsp minced celery
  • 1 tbsp thinly slice shallot

  1. Make lump crab avocado salad. Add all the ingredients (A) in a bowl and mix well, taking care to keep the lump crab pieces intact. Season to taste. You can serve this salad at room temperature or chilled.

Cooking Note(s)

  1. Apart from romaine lettuce, you can use your favourite salad leaves such as baby spinach, rocket, butterhead or an assorted salad mix.
  2. For lower calorie, I’m using half-calorie kewpie Japanese mayonnaise. You can also reduce the mayonnaise used to 1 tbsp.
  3. You can substitute shallot with red onion, and spring onions with chives or coriander.

  1. This looks absolutely right up my alley. Both crab and avocado are my favourites.

  2. I would do exactly the same! Buy more when on sale :P in fact, I wanted to buy lump crabmeat in a can to try (in a salad too!) quite recently but did not. Starting to regret after looking at your crab salad.
