  • 8 oz Aqua Star Crab Meat, thawed and drained
  • 2 avocados
  • 5 Roma tomatoes

To make

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 450 F (225 C). Cut bread into thick slices and bake until dry and toasted on outside, but soft in center (no more than 5 minutes). Dice the tomatoes and add to a medium bowl. Mix together dressing using the olive oil, vinegar, crushed garlic, lemon juice, sliced basil, salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the tomatoes and stir; let sit for about 10 minutes. Thinly slice the avocado and arrange about 1/2 an avocado on each piece of toast. Divide the tomato mixture between the 4 pieces of toast on top of the avocado. Place 1/4 (2 oz) of the crab meat on top of the tomato; serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions

To make into an appetizer, use a sliced baguette for bite-size mini toasts.
