Good evening blog readers! So Wednesday are great. It’s one of the few days I’m not running around after school. Yesterday my plans for chicken wings changed when I got pulled into a last minute interview and Mark worked late. Dinner planning is easy, schedule changes throw a wrench in things. Also, does anyone else plan ahead and when they get home from work, what is planned is the last thing on earth you want to eat? Or am I just weird?
So tonight chicken wings were on the menu and I didn’t want them. I had purchased crab from the seafood counter and on sale, earlier this week. I debated back and forth… Downloaded three crab cake recipes and determined crab cakes weren’t in the cards. But now that I had crab on the brain, what to eat…. Needless to say all this debating affected my thinking and I took no photos. So this recipe is a blind trust thing, which eventually I’ll post photos. I did a mix of like three pinterest recipes I found, so instead of sending you to three places to figure out how I mixed, I’ll share with you, but note that I was inspired by a few.
The recipe would be amazing on crackers, little pieces of bread, as an appetizer or small plate, on top of a salad or even just in a pile in your plate (the way we ate it).
8 oz of pre picked crab. (save the picking for paper table cloths, beer, and warm weather)
1 ripe avocado, diced to your preference (I like small pieces)
1/4 cup onion chopped finely (I prefer less potent, I use scallions or vidallia)
1/4 red pepper, chopped finely (you got green, yellow or orange? use it, it won’t matter)
1 tablespoon mayo or miracle whip
2 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of one lime
2 teaspoons (or more) of Old Bay seasoning
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped (if you’re feeling adventurous, no need to add if you don’t want it. I tired both ways and loved it)
Mix together your wet items: lime, oil, mayo, egg, crab, onion and pepper. This will blend together nicely. Like wetter for a sandwich? Put more mayo. Then fold your avocado in.
It’s delicious. I hope you enjoy! Say wait… This is much like an appetizer at my wedding, however it was mango and crab… Hmmm to try that next!!
Well I apologize for not a single photo… However, inspiration catches you at “unplanned” times!!
Will you try it? Anyone ever had a an inspiration that turned out amazing? Please share
Until next time….
Live. Love. and Long for Summer.
