Crab Stuffed Avocado Recipe

We couldn’t hold ourselves from filling cup-shaped avocado slices, which we lightly browned in the oven. Chopped cooked shrimp or sliced chicken breast works well with the buttery avocado, as does sweet-spicy crab served with zingy lemon and herbs. A fresh summer squash salad or black bean salsa might also be used to fill the halves. If the avocado pit is too small, thin it down a little to provide more room for the filling.

  • 12.6 grams mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ¼ cup tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 1–2 tablespoons jalapeño, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, or salt to taste
  • 8 oz blue crab meat, regular lump
  • 2 medium Haas avocados
  • ground black pepper to taste


  • Mix the mayonnaise, lime juice, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, cayenne, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Remove the crab meat of any extra liquid before carefully mixing it into the sauce. If you overmix, you risk breaking apart the lumps in the crab.
  • Remove the shells from the avocados and cut them in half. Season both half of the avocado with salt and pepper.
  • Serve the crab salad immediately between the four avocado halves. Enjoy!


I like 2 tablespoons jalapeño, but that, mixed with the cayenne, makes it rather hot. If you want it to be softer, you may lessen the amounts.
Salt to taste, depending on whether or not the crab you’re using has been salted.
