Crab and Blackberry Guacamole

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.

Me: Hey Shawn, remember when we went to the Taste of Hartford two years ago and we ate that guacamole with fruit and lobster in it?

Shawn: How the hell do you remember these things?

Me: Because it was awesome.

That guacamole was awesome, but the real reason that I remembered about it was because I’ve been meaning to recreate it at home. I was just waiting for an appropriate opportunity. Like, say, the Avocados from Mexico Guac Off Recipe Contest?

Crab and Blackberry Guacamole

Yields 2 Cups
Prep Time 10 Minutes; Total Time: 10 Minutes

This Crab and Blackberry Guacamole is my submission to the Avocados from Mexico Guac Off. It may not seem like your traditional party food, but believe me it’s knock-your-socks-off delicious. It has the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, salty, and rich flavors and it’s a fun way to add something a little “fancy” to your lineup of football snacks. Try it on it’s own with chips, use it on fish tacos, or go ahead and eat it with a spoon like I’m tempted to do.

Ingredients

  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper, minced
  • 1 Lime, juiced
  • 1 Clementine, juiced
  • 10 Blackberries, quartered
  • 1/8 cup diced Pineapple
  • 1/4 cup Crab Claw Meat
  • 1 generous pinch Salt

Preparation

  1. Peel the avocados and remove the pits. Place the flesh in a large bowl, then use a spoon to chop and mash the avocado into a smooth paste. Stir in the jalapeno pepper and juice.
  2. Gently fold in the blackberries, pineapple, and crab. Season with salt.

  1. A friend of mine from high school adds dried cranberries to his guacamole. I’ve been meaning to post it after making it about a year ago. It’s delicious! Yours sounds yummy, too :-)

  2. Good luck in the contest, it sounds like such fun. I would love an iPad too!

  3. I really like the concept of this!
    Good luck with the contest.

  4. oh wow, blackberry with crab? I can kind of imagine how well that could work…crab is naturally sort of sweet and it goes with the tartness of the blackberries. Best of luck. Lauren!

  5. I would NEVER have thought to include these fruits in guac! So unique!

  6. I love that you included blackberries! How creative!! What a fabulous way to boost the flavor and fiber content of a very versatile dish.

  7. Good luck with the contest!!! Thss sounds super creative and I bet it’s delicious!

  8. Whoa, this is really really different! I’ve never seen anything but mango or citrus in guacamole before. Great job w/ this recipe!

  9. There is a local restaurant here that makes some incredible guac creations. Your guac reminds me of the flavors they offer. I bet this is an amazing combination of flavors! I’d love to take a scoop of it right now!

  10. Wow, this sounds amazing! Reminds me a little of a shrimp and mango guac that I had once and was so good! Will have to try it.
