A Great Summer Appetizer…

I had this appetizer as a meal while in Palm Springs. I really like the combination of the cucumber and seafood with Tajin Seasoning. Tajin can be found at Mexican Food Stores or in the Ethnic section of your local market.

 This appetizer will definitely be a hit, especially when the garden cucumbers come on. Here is my version of  this refreshing dish… 

Seasoned Cucumbers with Crab and Shrimp
By The Gourmet Farm Girl
2 King Crab legs (cooked)
4 Jumbo shrimp (cooked)
1 large fresh cucumber
1 lemon or lime
1 avocado  
1 teaspoon Tajin seasoning (or to taste)
(Tajin fruit seasoning is a blend of chile peppers, lime and salt)

Pull crab meat from legs and peel shrimp; set aside
Wash and peel the cucumber, cut in half lengthwise; remove the seeds by scooping out with a spoon. Cut cucumber across to create 4-5 hollowed out sections. 

Cut shrimp into bit size pieces and pull crab apart into bit size pieces. Top each cucumber section with the seafood; sprinkle with Tajin seasoning. 
Cut lemon into wedges; slice the avacado and arrange everything on a serving plate.
Squezze the lemon juice over the cucumbers and top with a slice of avacado before eating.
