1/2 C orange juice
1/4 C lemon juice
1 t red peper flakes
1 T honey
12 cooked snow crab claws
2 oz orange juice
1 oz lemon juice

1 T Dijon Mustard
1 T Chopped Shallot
1/2 t chopped garlic
1 C olive oil
4 C baby spring greens
1/4 c chopped basil leaves

  1. Start with your marinade. Combine the first five ingredients into the bowl and add your cooked crab. Marinate at least 1 hour. For the vinaigrette, blend all ingredients in a bowl and slowly add the olive oil while quickly whisking to emulsify. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. For your salad, equally distribute the tossed spring mix greens and grapefruit in 4 bowls. Add vinaigrette to each bowl to taste and garnish with avocado. Center the 12 crab claws (3 per serving) on 4 plates.
