Crab and Avocado
I would say this is one of the most versatile fish appetizer recipes you could find - it's certainly a very tasty one.
You'll need ripe avocados for this - if you press the stalk end very gently, there should be some give.
Stoning it is fairly simple - just take a sharp knife and score round the centre of the 'long' side.
Cut right to the stone - hold the 'halves' firmly in each hand and 'twist' so that they go in opposite directions.
This should result in one of the halves coming away from the stone.
Take your knife and loosen the stone from the other half and you're away.
Loosen the flesh by running a knife as close to the skin as you can.
The crab mixture can be as simple as you like and serve it depending on what your tastes are.
Crab meat is quite rich - use white meat here and about 3 to 4 oz (75 to 100g) per person - then:-
It's best to eat with a spoon rather than a knife and fork - much like a prawn cocktail.
Your imagination is the only limit here - you can garnish with a few shrimp if you like.
Fish appetizers are very popular as many of them can be prepared ahead, leaving you time to concentrate on the main courses.
Also, a lot of people are shy of preparing fish even though they love it - they just don't know how to serve it.
Smoked salmon is a super simple way of serving fish as a starter and very luxurious. Shrimp are a firm favourite with many people and a fish cake is a great way of making a small amount of fish go a long way.
