This recipe was simple to throw together and very enjoyable. I did alter it a bit from the original to allow for the flavors to meld more before eating right away. I added the avocado as I ate since it in multiple servings and didn’t want it to turn brown.


  • 12 oz lump crab meat
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 hass avocado, diced
  • 2 hot peppers such as serrano or jalapeños, diced fine (seeds removed for mild)
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted corn kernels
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 limes, juice of (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste


In a small bowl combine red onion, lime juice, olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper. Let them marinate at least 5 minutes to mellow the flavor of the onion.

In a large bowl combine chopped crab meat,  tomatoes, hot pepper and corn. Combine the liquids and the items in the large bowl, add cilantro and gently toss. Allow to sit for a few hours.

Adjust lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Add in the avocado.
