Coconut Crab and Shrimp Salad

    Great, fast recipe! I used imitation crab and pre-cooked shrimp for cheaper, easier version. Also, for a more ceviche-like dish, I used an entire lemon, and let it sit in the fridge for a couple hours (don't add avocado until the end if you do this). Omitted coconut and oil and will use one more jalapeno next time. Used bagged mixed lettuce with great results. My seafood skeptic boyfriend loved it two days in a row!

    I made this for a "girls get together" and everyone wanted the recipe. I presented it as an appetizer, but it would work great as a light main dish during the summer. I used real crab over the imitation. I will serve it again, as it was a hit among picky palates.

    I thought this was ok, but not amazing. Good enough for a casual lunch, but that's about it.

    We made this salad as a meal and served with the Potato, Mushroom, and Leek Croquettes receipe from Cooking Light. The two really complimented each other. I would add slightly more lemon juice and avocado next time. We used real crab, and all fresh ingredients which made a huge impact.This would be a great summer picnic receipe as you could make ahead of time. Your tastebuds will jump for joy!
