Avocado Crawfish Toast

Here's a yummy little toast. Perfect as an appetizer, or for a light dinner. We had it for Friday night, and followed up with some cheese and crackers. Yum!

Avocado Crawfish Toast
Serves 4

1 avocado
1 red onion
200 g crawfish tails
1-2 cloves of garlic
3-4 tbsp creme fraiche
1-2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
salt, pepper
bleak roe
optional: dill

Dice the avocado into large dice, and the onion very finely. Crush the garlic. Chop the crawfish tails roughly. Mix together with just enough creme fraiche to bind it. Add dill if you want to - I prefer it without - and season with salt, pepper and sweet chilli sauce. Place on toasted bread or on crackers, and garnish with a little bit of roe or some smoked salmon.

That really looks so yummy. What is the bleak in bleak roe?

Thediningdika - a fish? :) I think that's the translation for what's here called "Löjrom". Any roe or caviar will work, of course! :)

Yummy stuff once again! It works nicely with dill, and I guess just a few drops of lemon juice and finely diced (cored) cucumber wouldn't ruin the dish either?

Anne said...

Henrik - yeay for the lemon juice, but I don't know if I'd like cucumber in there. I think I'd prefer it as garnish then, maybe thinly julienned cucumber.. yum! :)

Henrik said...

Yes - it would have to be as garnish; either julienned or just very finely diced, sprinkled over it all. I think it'd lend a nice crispness to the otherwise creamy topping. Have to try it some day. :)
