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


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.
