Recipe: Spicy Avocado Crab on Wonton Chips

Here's a little recipe I came up with over the holidays while brainstorming quick, easy and delicious appetizers to teach at my Holiday Appetizers Workshop.  I was inspired by classic California Roll Sushi that features crab, avocado and cucumber.  Instead of cucumber, I used fresh chives for just a hint of onion to offset the sweet crab and avocado.

The crab salad comes together in just a few minutes and can be portioned on top of crispy wonton chips or served in a bowl as a self-serve dip.

Spicy Avocado Crab on Wonton Chips

  • 8 oz. package imitation Crab, flake style*
  • 1 small avocado, peeled and cubed 
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil 
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Sriracha mayonnaise**
  • A squeeze of fresh lime 
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped chives, plus more for garnish 
  • 1/2 package round wonton wrappers (or square wrappers trimmed with a circle cookie cutter) 
  • black sesame seeds for garnish 

Step 1: In a food processor, pulse crab until fine (approx. 15 seconds).  Do not process into a paste. 

Step 2: In a medium bowl, combine crab, avocado, sesame oil Sriracha mayo, and chives. Chill till ready to use.

Step 3: Prepare wonton crackers by heating vegetable or other neutral oil in a medium sauce pan. Fry a few wonton wrappers at a time, until golden.

Step 4: Serve crab on the wonton crackers, garnished with sesame seeds and chives

*Of course, you may use real crab if you wish.
**Most stores are selling pre-made Sriracha Mayonnaise these days.  You can make it from scratch by combining regular mayonnaise and Sriracha to taste.
