The social network that celebrates Latin food
For quite sometime, I have been telling my husband how I want to cook lobster at home. That is one of the things I have not tried yet. My husband Richard, who used to be one of the world's pickiest eaters, has come a long way this past year! So to make sure he liked lobster, I took a little help from the store and purchased some precooked to prepare this salad. And a little goes a long way if you just wanted to create that special appetizer. The lemon pickled red onions combined with the sweet seafood, then that heat from the habaneros, it just hits all the right notes! Just for fun I purchased some store bought spicy "Doritos" to plate this fun appetizer.
Yields up to 4 serving for an appetizer
3 ounces lump crab, flaked
3 ounces lobster claw, chopped
1/2 cup lemon pickled red onions
1 habanero, minced
1 serrano, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 large avocado, diced or mashed (at least 1 1/2 cups)
Salt to taste
For Lemon Pickled Red Onion
1 small red onion, sliced thin
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to taste
1. In a glass bowl, combine the red onion and lemon juice and stir well to combine. Start by adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt, stir well. Season with salt, to taste. Cover and let marinate for 30 minutes while you prep the other ingredients.
2. Combine all of the other ingredients in a bowl, leaving the avocado for last. After the onions have marinated for 30 minutes, drain the lemon juice and fold them into the salad, taste for salt. Yields up to 4 serving for an appetizer. Serve with tortilla chips. If not serving right away, cover with plastic wrap, making sure to press wrap down until it makes contact with salad. This will keep the avocados from turning brown. Keep chilled until ready to serve.
