Cooking Instructions

This towering dish might look intimidating, but it’s actually super simple. In fact, it doesn’t require any cooking at all!

The trick is to use a tall mold and firmly pack all of your ingredients into it. If you haven’t got a mold, you can cut the top and bottom off an aluminum beverage can to make one yourself. For a vegan option, just leave off the last layer of crab meat.

This dish only features one layer of microgreens, but feel free to add more if you’d like!

Place a layer of pea shoots in the mold and then top with a layer of firmly packed tomatoes. Place a layer of sliced cucumbers atop the tomatoes, fanning them out to fill the circular mold. Layer the diced mango atop the cucumbers, then add the red onions.

Add a layer of avocado, pushing it firmly into the mold. Add a layer of crab, then while pushing down on the crab with one hand, slowly slide the mold upward to reveal the layered La Jolla Crab Stack. Drizzle with ginger-lime dressing and serve.
