First, put on your favorite easy-going playlist starting with Dawes, “We’re all gonna die” (well it’s true AND it’s a great song). Next, open a bottle of Lioco Chardonnay and sip along while putting your little ingredients together. I’m sharing this recipe because it’s easy, super delicious, looks beautiful and a great start to a late summer meal.
Avocado Lime Crab “Soup” (serves approx 4)
1 cup of cold milk
2 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup of lump crab (if you don’t like crab you can substitute with an old shoe, it will taste just as good)
Salt, Pepper and a little Cayenne pepper
Put avocados and stock in a Magic Bullet or blender and blend until smooth. Add milk and the juice of one lime and blend again. Stir in salt and pepper to taste. You can add more broth if you prefer a thinner consistency. This can be put in the fridge until ready to serve.
When ready to serve, put the soup in small bowls and place the crab in a lump in the center. Sprinkle a little cayenne over the top followed by the cilantro and spoon immediately into your happy mouth. I served this with wild-caught salmon and a side of roasted asparagus and tomatoes, if you care.
These are the cups we collected and drank from as kids. This should explain a lot.
