Most crab lovers know that fresh crab pairs well with avocado. But have you ever tried it with roasted hazelnuts (also called Filberts)? I got this idea from a crab hazelnut pear appetizer prepared by Oregon chef Jason Stoller Smith. It's lovely. From simplyrecipes.com

Recipe Ingredients for Crab Salad with Pear and Hazelnuts

1 1/2 cups fresh lump crab meat
1/4 cup hazelnuts, roasted and chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 (firm but sweet) pears, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp lemon juice (or 3 Tbsp Meyer lemon juice)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 Freshly ground pepper
1 Salt and pepper to taste
4 oz (4 large pieces) butter lettuce, rinsed and patted dry

Recipe Directions for Crab Salad with Pear and Hazelnuts

  1. In a medium sized bowl mix the hazelnuts, celery, pear, onion, parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, ground pepper, and salt. Gently fold in the lump crab meat, trying not to break up the crab too much.

  2. Make individual servings, about a half cup each over a piece of butter lettuce.
