Avocado Crab Cakes sends an ordinary crab cake right off the charts! This recipe has big chunks of crab mixed with cubes of fresh avocado that gives a creamy, full flavor bite! Dip it in a Sriracha dipping sauce for added zing!
This recipe for Avocado crab cakes came about from my current addiction to great avocados. It’s kind of like bacon in my world…. Add avocado to anything and it suddenly gets better. (Don’t even get me started how wonderful I think a BLT with avocado is!!)
I have family in Alaska and up until a few years ago they would send us a shipment of Alaskan King crab legs from friends of theirs who actually fished them. I kid you not the crab legs were HUGE! As thick as my forearm?! I miss those days. The family that fished them has since retired so that happy care package doesn’t show up anymore.
You can get great crab legs at the grocery store, even Costco carries some pretty large ones occasionally.
When making crab cakes you want to get crab legs and then break apart the crab to smaller bite sized pieces or you can buy it in cans….
