Sometimes it’s nice to have an easy, throw-together recipe. These delicious, crunchy crab stuffed lettuce cups are simple to make and fun to eat. The freshness and quality of the crab is of the utmost importance, so make sure to procure the very best. The turmeric balsamic adds sweetness and punch to the mix. Substitute a sweet white “balsamic” in a pinch. Yield: 8 lettuce cups
1. In a small bowl toss together the crab, chili, green onion, chopped mint, cilantro and basil until evenly combined. Try to leave crab as chunky as possible.
2. Add lime juice to taste and then season with salt to taste.
3. Arrange lettuce cups on a serving plate. Divide carrots evenly between the cups, then top with the sliced cucumber and crab.
4. Drizzle with turmeric balsamic. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and a few flakes of sea salt. Serve immediately.
