I served this Crab Melt recipe, tapas style-- cut into bite-size pieces. I didn't measure, but I'll do my best to give you measurements. My best advice is to season and taste as you go along!
- 1 to 2 cups fresh cracked crab
- 1 ripe avocado, sliced thin
- 1 fresh baguette
- Good quality olive oil, to brush on the bread
- 1 clove fresh garlic, for the bread.
- 2 to 4 sliced provolone cheese (or your choice)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 to 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh chives (or scallions)
- 1 to 2 teaspoons fresh chopped tarragon
- Kosher salt & fresh cracked pepper, to taste
- 1 to 2 tablespoons Hellmans/Best Foods Mayonnaise
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 25mins

Add the mayonnaise, Old Bay Seasoning, lemon juice and fresh herbs. Mix in the crab carefully, to keep the crab pieces.
Taste. If needed add a little kosher salt and cracked black pepper. Add this slowly, and taste, taste, taste!
Slice the baguette in half and brush with olive oil.
Broil for about 1 minute, until lightly golden.
Remove from the broiler and rub a fresh clove on garlic on it-- lightly! Don't overdo it.
Add a mound of crab salad on each slice of bread, add 3-4 avocado slices and top with cheese.
Return to the broiler for about 1 minute, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
