DIRECTIONS

  • GUACAMOLE:
  • Preheat a grill pan.
  • In a small bowl, toss the scallions, garlic and jalapeno with the vegetable oil.
  • Grill over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until charred all over, 3-5 minutes.
  • Transfer to a work surface and let cool.
  • Finely chop the scallions and jalapeno; transfer to medium bowl.
  • Peel the garlic cloves, mash them to a paste and add them to the bowl.
  • Scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl and coarsely mash with a fork.
  • Fold the cilantro and lime juice into the guacamole; season with salt & pepper (make sure you don't over-season because there is more salt & pepper in the soup!).
  • CHILLED AVOCADO SOUP TOPPED WITH CRAB:
  • In a blender, puree the guacamole with the cold buttermilk, bottled clam juice, ice water and lime juice.
  • Season the soup with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the soup into 4 bowls and top with the jumbo lump crab meat.
  • Garnish each bowl of soup with creme fraiche, fried tortilla strips and finely chopped chives.
