SERVES 8 Stuffed Avocado Halves
 
PREP TIME 20 minutes
 
COOK TIME 5 minutes
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups cooked Alaska crab meat
  • 3 scallions, sliced, plus more for serving
  • 4 avocados, halved and pitted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Fold in the Alaska crab meat and scallions. 
  2. Use a spoon to scoop some of the flesh out of the avocados, leaving a larger cavity for stuffing (you can use the avocado you scoop out for another purpose—I like to mash it with a little lemon juice and freeze to use in smoothies later). 
  3. Divide the crab mixture between the avocados and top with the cheddar cheese. Position a rack about 8 inches below the heating element and broil for 2-5 minutes, checking frequently, or until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown. Top with extra scallions if desired and serve hot.
