Crab & Avocado Puffs

Puffs Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit (210 degrees Celcius). Place butter in water in a saucepan on low heat until butter melts; bring to a boil. Remove pan from heat and add flour all at once. Stir quickly until dough comes together and forms a lump or balls up in the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes longer. There should be a film on the inside surface of the pan. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well between additions. Grease or line a baking sheet and drop batter by teaspoonfuls, one inch apart. Bake for 20 minutes until puffed and dried. Cool and cut open. Makes 15-18 puffs.

    Fillings Ingredients:
  • 8 oz crab meat
  • 2 tbs lime juice
  • 1/2 avocado, mashed
  • 1 tbs sour cream
  • 1 tbs mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup chopped chadon beni (cilantro)
  • 1 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tbs finely chopped chives

    Combine all the ingredients. Add chadon beni just before serving and chill. Fill puffs and serve. Fills about 24.
