Who doesn’t love a ripe avocado? The avocado in this recipe serves as the cup for a creamy seafood mix in this exquisite appetizer. Your taste buds will be bubbling over with ebullience upon sampling such a fine first course…
½ cup flaked, cooked crabmeat
½ cup cooked small shrimp
2 tablespoons peeled, seeded, and diced cucumber
2 tablespoons diced celery
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
1 pinch salt
1 pinch ground black pepper
1 pinch paprika
Cut the avocados lengthwise and remove the pit. Retaining the shape of the pit, scoop out an additional amount of flesh, leaving about ½ inch on the peel and save for later. Set aside.
In a bowl, mix the additional avocado flesh, drained crab, drained shrimp, diced cucumber, diced celery, mayonnaise, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, spoon the seafood mixture into the hollowed centers of the avocado halves. Sprinkle the tops with paprika. Enjoy!
