    Turn these into tasty tostadas.

    • 1 lb lump crabmeat
    • 1 tbsp. olive oil
    • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
    • 3 tbsp. finely chopped red onion
    • 3 plum tomatoes, cored, seeded and chopped
    • 1/4 cup lightly packed cilantro leaves, chopped
    • 2 limes, finely grated zest and juice
    • salt and black pepper
    • 8 flat tostada shells (packaged or homemade)
    • 1 avocado, pitted and thinly sliced


    • cilantro sprigs
    • 2 limes, quartered

    Put the crabmeat in a bowl.  Pick through it with your fingers to remove any cartilage. Add the oil, mayonnaise, onion, jalapeno, tomatoes, cilantro and lime zest and juice to the crabmeat. 

    Using a rubber spatula or spoon, gently fold (or toss) all ingredients until well-blended. Season well with salt and pepper. Top each tostada shell with a few slices of avocado, place a generous serving of the crabmeat mixture over it and garnish with a sprig of cilantro. 

    Serve each with a lime wedge.
