Hayden's blue swimmer crab nachos

Makes 6

 

INGREDIENTS:

600g blue swimmer crab meat

1 bag blue tortilla chips/or corn chips

2 corn on the cob, husk removed

1/2 cup tasty cheese, grated

1 ripe avocado, diced into small squares

2 baby radish, thinly sliced

2 shallots, cut on angle

1/2 cup sour cream, to serve

Hot sauce, to taste

2 limes, to serve

1/4 cup coriander, roughly chopped, to garnish.

 

METHOD: Parboil the whole corn on the cob for 10 minutes. Remove, drain and cook on the barbecue or griddle pan until corn is blackened and charred. Remove and set aside to cool, before using a knife to slice off the corn kernels.

Preheat oven to 180C. Spread tortilla chips on a baking tray and evenly distribute the crab meat, topping with cheese. Place into oven for 5-7minutes or until cheese has melted. Remove nachos from baking tray and place on serving platter. Top with avocado, corn, radish, shallots, sour cream and garnish with coriander. Serve with lime wedges and hot sauce.

TIP: Use canned crab meat if this is the only accessible option. You can also use whatever crab meat is locally accessible to you.
