FFwD:Salmon and Grapefruit Salad
Our recipe for the week was the Crab and Grapefruit Salad on page 134. This assignment created something of a dilemma as we don’t eat shellfish at home. I knew there was an option to use imitation crabmeat. I discovered that all the regular imitation crab is flavored with real crab shells so I tried to find kosher imitation crab but there was none to be found here. I had a piece of poached salmon in the refrigerator so I decided to try the recipe substituting the salmon for the crab. It was an inspired choice. I had a ripe avocado so I made guacamole with half and small pieces with the rest. I served it as the first course at dinner. My husband and daughter who is usually a picky eater loved this. Surprisingly I too found it agreeable.
