I love this recipe for so many reasons, not the least of which is that it's so easy to prepare. It's healthy, delicious & makes a great appetizer, snack, light lunch or side dish.

Serves: 4 to 8

1/2 cup Smart Balance light mayonnaise, use 1/3 cup if you prefer

2 Tblsp fresh squeezed lime juice (about 1/2 lime)

1/2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp Hungarian hot paprika

1/4 tsp kosher or sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper, 4 pepper mill turns

1 lb crabmeat (see Tip# 1)

2 scallions, sliced thin (about 1/4 cup)

1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

4 Hass avocados

Directions

1 In a 1.5 quart bowl; mix the mayonnaise, lime juice, coriander, cumin, paprika, salt & pepper till well combined.

2 Add the crabmeat, scallions & red onion. Stir gently until well mixed.

3 Cover & refrigerate 1 to 2 hours before serving, allowing the ingredients to marry & attain maximum flavor.

Tips & Suggestions

1 I suggest using a really good brand of canned crabmeat, which you can find in most supermarkets in the refrigerated section of the seafood area. Pick a brand, like Byrd (pictured), which is all claw meat or one where at least 1/2 the can is comprised of lump crabmeat.

2 If you have a hard time finding certain herbs, spices & seasonings or you just want to save a lot of money, check out my favorite online source... SpicesForLess.com.

  1. I am always looking for healthy lunch ideas. This looks great. Love this combination. I’ve never tried to make crabmeat salad. Looks really good!

  2. Looks great! Sometimes sourcing crabmeat in my neck of the woods is a problem, but this recipe…hmmmm…going to have to take another look around… 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Hi Steve, because this crabmeat is canned, you can order it online. I didn’t find the Byrd brand at Amazon, but there are some good looking other brands I found. Go to Amazon.com & search for “crabmeat lump meat”.
