Caviar Recipe: Caviar, Crab and Avocado Tower

This caviar recipe is very easy to prepare and makes a beautiful presentation.

The lightly seasoned fresh crab and avocado pairs wonderfully with high quality osetra caviar such as Black River Caviar. The simplicity of the recipe allows the caviar to take center stage. Use as much caviar as your wallet allows!

Caviar, Crab and Avocado Tower


  • 5 ounces fresh dungeness crab
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced shallot
  • a dash of paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces Black River Caviar


Carefully combine dungeness crab, shallots, paprika, half of the lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Cut the avocado in half, remove pit, and spoon the flesh into a small bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork. Add the other half of the lemon juice to the smashed avocado, and add salt and pepper to taste. To serve the towers, begin with a 3″ flattened mound of smashed avocado on each of four plates. Divide the crab into 4 servings and form a layer of crab on top of the avocado on each plate. Using a spoon, top each layer of crab with a second mound of avocado and flatten. Finally, spoon 1 ounce of Black River Caviar on top of each tower.  Serve immediately.
