Catalina Crab in Avocado

Author Notes: My Mom gave me this recipe when I was in college and lived in a dorm. No kitchen or utensils available gave me few options for meals. Somehow, 30 years later, this exotic little meal has transferred itself into a quick, light lunch on hot days or an appetizer for a grilled meal.cafemom
