Why I Love This Recipe

I can’t express enough how much I love my Avocado Stuffed Crab Bowl! What truly sets this recipe apart is its ingenious fusion of flavors and textures. Inspired by my Bacon Wrapped California Roll recipe, this dish combines the creamy richness of avocado with the savory goodness of crab mix, creating a unique and delightful new way to experience the savory flavors of a California roll!

This dish is my go-to for a light, nourishing snack or meal, perfect for anyone seeking a healthy dose of omega-3s with every bite! Trust me, once you taste it, you’ll want to make it over and over again. Let’s dive in and savor the deliciousness together!



  • Crab Meat – fresh or canned crab meat. Can be shredded or lump meat.
  • Avocado – ripe avocado halved.
  • Green Onion – finely chopped.
  • Mayonnaise – use Japanese Kewpie Mayo. Can substitute with regular mayo but will alter flavor.
  • Soy Sauce – low-sodium Soy Sauce preferred. Can also use tamari for gluten-free.
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds – optional garnish.

🥑 Avocado Ripening Pro Tip

For a quick ripening of your avocado, pop it in a Paper Bag alongside a Banana or Apple. These fruits release ethylene gas, expediting the ripening process.

🍽️ Alternate Serving Method

An alternate serving method for this recipe is to De-Seed the Avocado and Place the Crab Mix in the Pit. This allows you to scoop pieces of the avocado out along with the crab mix, providing a convenient and flavorful way to enjoy the dish.

🌿 Garnishing Pro Tip

Sprinkle optional Toasted Sesame Seeds on top.

Recipe Variations

Easily switch out the crab mix for a tuna mix to create my Tuna Salad Avocado Bowl. For a sushi-inspired option, try my Spicy Tuna Avocado Bowl. Each variation offers a unique take on the classic avocado bowl!

Pairing Recommendations

While my avocado bowl stands as a delightful light meal on its own, it pairs wonderfully with other healthy options such as my Ground Beef & Mushroom Endive or a side of Garlic Truffle Edamame.
