- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
Stuffing the cavity of a halved avocado has
to be one of the easiest ways to serve it, and
this crab filling can be made ahead
- STEP 1
To make the crab mix, flake the crabmeat into a small bowl and mix in the mustard and oil, then season to taste. Can be made the day ahead. Add the basil and chilli just before serving.
- STEP 2
To serve, halve and stone the avocados. Fill each cavity with a quarter of the crab mix, scatter with a few of the smaller basil leaves and eat with teaspoons.
For a cheaper version, mix the same ingredients with some flaked tinned tuna rather than crab.
