Confetti crab salad

Andreas Trauttmansdorff


Ingredients

  • 2 green onions
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 up frozen peas
  • 340-g pkg imitation king crab
  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce , preferably chipotle-flavoured
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • fresh sprigs cilantro , optional

Instructions

  • Thinly slice onions. Finely chop celery. Core and seed peppers, then finely chop. Chop cilantro. Place all in a large bowl. Add peas. Coarsely chop crab and add. In a small bowl, squeeze 2 tbsp (30 mL) juice from 1 lime. Cut other lime into 8 wedges and set aside. Whisk mayonnaise, Tabasco and salt into lime juice. Drizzle over crab mixture and stir until evenly mixed. Cover and refrigerate up to 1 hour before serving. After that, salad may begin to water out a little bit.
  • Just before serving, taste and add more lime juice, if needed. Spoon into martini glasses, sundae cups or small bowls. Garnish with lime wedges and sprigs of cilantro.
