Crab salad with avocado

all details

Food has long been used for seduction. More than simply feeding our bodies for fuel, food can be deliberately used to tempt. Picked crab meat is available from good fishmongers, with all the messy hard work done for you already.

Ingredients

  • ½ lebanese cucumber
  • 200g crab meat, picked and cooked
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp chervil, chopped
  • 1 tbsp dill, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (or olive oil)
  • 50g mache or baby salad greens
  • Lemon wedges to serve

Method

Finely slice the cucumber with a mandolin or sharp knife. Mix the crab meat with one tablespoon mixed lemon juice and zest, chervil and dill in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Adjust flavour with remaining lemon juice, if needed. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pip (holding the avocado gently in your hand, carefully whack the pip with the blade of a sharp kitchen knife to securely embed, then twist the knife in one direction to dislodge). Peel and slice. Drizzle over some lemon juice to prevent browning. Mix vinegar and oil and season. Toss the salad leaves and cucumber with the dressing. There will be barely enough dressing, just enough to lightly coat the leaves. Place on two plates with sliced avocado. Top with crab meat and serve with lemonwedges.
