• 1 small red onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Caster sugar – ¼ tsp
  • Salt – ¼ tsp
  • Fresh ground black pepper – to taste
  • Crabmeat in brine – 1 can (170 g)
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 red chili, seeded, finely chopped
  • Garlic – 1 small clove, crushed
  • 1 avocado, really ripe, peeled, stone removed, chopped
  • 2 corn tortillas
  • Salad mix – 2 cups
  • Lime wedges – for serving




  1. Put the red onion into a small bowl, cover with ½ of the lime juice, sprinkle with salt and sugar, set aside until everything else is ready.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the crabmeat, half the chopped chili, the spring onions; season with pepper and set aside.
  3. In another medium bowl, mash the avocado with the other ½ of lime juice and garlic (adjust the texture to your taste: you can either make it chunky or smooth). Stir in the other half of the chili.
  4. Drain the red onion.
  5. Toast the tortillas, bended in half, in a toaster for 1 minute. Put each on a plate; top with salad mix. Spoon ½ of avocado on top of the salad leaves. Top the tostadas with crabmeat and red onion. Serve with wedges of lime.
