Yield: 6 servings
Preparation time: 25 minutes
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 mango, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch piece
1/3 cup diced (1/4-inch) red bell pepper
1/3 cup diced (1/4-inch) red onion
1/2 jalapeño, finely diced (about 2 tablespoons)
1/2 pound jumbo lump crabmeat
3 Hass avocados
Kosher or fine sea salt
Freshly ground pepper
Tip: To keep the avocados from sliding around the plates, cut a thin sliver of skin (or flesh) from the rounded side of each half before filling.
For a more dramatic presentation, layer the ingredients in a ring mold (similar to a biscuit cutter without the handle). Peel and pit the avocados, dice them into 3/4-inch pieces. Toss them with lime juice to keep them from turning dark. Make the crab salad. Place the ring mold over the center of the plate and put half a diced avocado in the mold. Top with 1/6 of the crab salad. Lift the mold and the ingredients will remain in place.
