Crab Avocado Mango Stack

"This is one of my favorite appetizers at a local seafood restaurant. I loved it so much that I've recreated it at home. It makes enough for two generously portioned stacks."

Ready In:
2 Stacks




  • Mix last 8 ingredients (mayo through Tabasco), & refrigerate.
  • Use a dual open ended cylindrical mold to form the stacks. (If you don't have a mold, use an empty clean soup or veggie can with both ends removed.) Place the mold onto the serving plate.
  • (use half of the ingredients in each mold).
  • Gently push down the avocado slices into the bottom of the mold.
  • Mix together the mango, jalapeno, red bell pepper, & red onion, then gently push down on top of the avocado layer.
  • Gently toss the crab with the refrigerated mayo mix (remoulade), then gently push down on top of the mango layer.
  • Carefully slide the mold off of the stack and chill until ready to serve.
  • Serve cold.

    Can I use imitation crabmeat?

    I had this once at a restaurant and always wanted to re-create it. This is so delicious. My husband and I love that we can make it at home, it's even better. This recipe ROCKS!

    Tried this for New Year's Eve dinner with guests. Everyone raved! Absolutely delicious! There were 5 of us so I used a one pound can of crab and did 1 1/2 recipe of the remoulade, along with a little more red pepper, avocado, mango, and onion. My molds were 3 inches in diameter and 2 inches high. I lined the inside of the molds with a strip of acetate that was 3 inches high. All I had to do was lift the mold and the strip of acetate fell away and left a perfect stacked salad! Definitely a keeper!

    this looks like something I ate at Outback minus the mango. I am going to try it ! It was so yummy and the mango probably takes it over the edge.


I absolutely love to cook!! I love to create new dishes and experiment with new recipes I find. My cooking style is a bit on the gourmet side and I love a challenging dish! Watching the expressions on the faces of my family and friends as they take their first bite of my creations is what brings me joy. When I see their eyes light up and that smile spread across their lips...I know I've done my job well. Cooking brings me joy!
