I know this recipe is a little different to my usual ones. Avocado sorbet is not something I’m in the habit of making every day, and pairing it with a crab salad is not everyday home cooking, at least not in my house. But hey, it’s good to push yourself a little sometimes.
It’s actually inspired by a starter I had at James Martin’s restaurant at the Talbot Hotel in Malton. I was impressed and I really liked my starter. There was something about the dish that made me want to do my own take on crab and avocado. Now, I should make it clear that the starter I had was quite different. It did contain crab and avocado sorbet but it also had fennel in and a few ingredients that would be impossible for me to source/prepare and so this is definitely just an inspired by dish.
