Crab, Shrimp, and Mango Salad with Yuzu Vinaigrette

Yuzu, a kind of Japanese citrus, has an ultra-aromatic, floral flavor that makes it a knockout with seafood and mango. A soy-ginger mayo and a sprinkle of minced kaffir lime leaves add more layers of complexity.

Cracked Crab with Herbed Avocado Sauce

This super-simple sauce was inspired by the tarragon tang and beautiful color of green goddess dressing. It's rich yet has a bit of a bite, and highlights the briny sweetness of crab.

We swear this is the last crabcake recipe you’ll ever need. We especially love the way the crab is bound with a creamy scallop purée rather than bread crumbs.

Crab Rangoons

Packed with fresh crab, these indulgent appetizers are a step up from the rangoons (deep-fried dumplings) often sold at Chinese restaurants. They can be made ahead and frozen, then cooked when guests arrive. Set out several dipping sauces, as everyone seems to have a favorite.
