Crab Louis
What You Need:
  • 1½ cups freshly made mayonnaise, or substitute 1½ cups unsweetened bottled mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup bottled chili sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped scallions, including 2 inches of the green tops
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped sweet green bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon strained fresh lemon juice
  • 1½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 drops Tabasco
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ pounds (about 3 cups) freshly cooked or defrosted frozen crabmeat, drained and thoroughly picked over to remove all bits of shell and cartilage, then cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 large firm ripe avocados
  • 2 heads Boston lettuce, separated into leaves, trimmed, washed and thoroughly chilled
  • 2 medium-sized firm ripe tomatoes, washed, stemmed and each cut lengthwise into 6 wedges
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, cut lengthwise into quarters

  • How To Cook:
    1. Combine the mayonnaise, chili sauce, scallions, peppers, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco and salt in a deep mixing bowl and stir with a wire whisk until the ingredients are well blended.

    2. Taste for seasoning, then add the crabmeat and toss it about gentlywith a spoon until the pieces are evenly coated.

    3. Cut the avocados in half. With the tip of a small knife, loosen each seed and lift it out. Remove any brown tissuelike fibers clinging to the flesh.

    4. Strip off the skin with your fingers starting at the narrow stem end. (The dark-skinned variety does not peel easily; use a knife to pull the skin away, if necessary.)

    5. To assemble the crab Louis, place the avocado halves on six individual serving plates and spoon the crab mixture into the cavities.

    6. Arrange the lettuce leaves in rings around the avocado, and garnish the leaves with the tomatoes and hard-cooked eggs. Serve at once.
