Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 8 ounces cooked fresh crabmeat
  • 2 cups watercress
  • 2 hard cooked egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Directions

Peel half of one avocado. In a small bowl, mash avocado half. Add scallion, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and hot pepper sauce. Stir until well combined. Reserve. 

In separate bowl, stir together mayonnaise, chili sauce, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and remaining teaspoon lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Reserve. 

Peel remaining 1 1/2 avocados, cut into half-inch cubes, and place in a large bowl. Squeeze excess moisture from crabmeat. Add to cubed avocado and gently combine. Fold in mayonnaise.
