What’s for Dinner?
Crab Stuffed Avocado
This dish works well for entertaining, or a quick and light meal anytime. While it may seem higher in fat, avocados are rich in heart healthy monounsaturated fats! Mono fat has been shown to help lower bad cholesterol (LDL) while raising good cholesterol (HDL)…a double bonus!
1lb crab meat (canned or fresh) or cooked baby shrimp
½ c fat free Ranch dressing or fat free mayonnaise
½ c chopped red bell pepper
½ c chopped green onions
½ c chopped celery
2 Tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce – to taste
¼ tsp Hot sauce – to taste
¼ tsp Old Bay seasoning
Drain crab and place in a paper towel-lined bowl. Allow to stand for 15 minutes to remove excess moisture. Meanwhile, chop vegetables into small pieces (about ½”) and mix with dressing, lemon juice and seasonings. Lightly toss crab into mixture.
Wash avocados, slice in half, remove pit and fill with crab mixture. Serve on a lettuce leave with a crusty roll or crackers.
Tip: If crab meat is a little too rich for your budget, try with imitation crab meat, or a mixture of real and imitation.
