Crab Taco’s with yogurt lime cilantro sauce

How lovely would it be to come home and have a dinner that you don’t have to cook? Well my friends this is your lucky day! This a recipe that doesn’t involve any cooking. It has been so hot here that the last thing I want to do is to turn on my stove to cook. So this week when I went shopping I concocted a meal plan that would allow me to do as little cooking as possible. My meal plan thus far has been quite genius not to mention delicious! I can’t wait to share some of the recipes with you, but first these no cook taco’s.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients Taco filling
10 ounces of fresh lump crab meat steamed
1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1-2 teaspoons of Lime juice
Sea salt to taste
1/2 cup of Shredded carrots
1/2 cup of shredded cabbage
1/2 cup of diced tomatoes
1/3 cup of chopped fresh cilantro

Ingredients for lime cilantro yogurt sauce
1 cup of Greek yogurt
Juice of half a lime
1 clove of garlic chopped
Sea salt to taste
2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro

Ingredients for pickled red onion
1 red onion sliced thinly
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of sugar
1.5 teaspoons of kosher salt

Directions yogurt sauce:
In a small bowl add all the ingredients for the yogurt sauce, mix well and set aside.

Directions for pickled onion:
In a medium bowl whisk the salt and sugar into 1 cup of water, until the salt and sugar dissolves, add in the vinegar and onions and let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour. Hint you can do this the night before you need to use the onions.

Directions for Taco:
In a medium bowl, mix the cumin and lime juice with the crab meat. Warm corn tortillas and add the crab, top with cabbage, tomato, carrot, pickled onion, cilantro, and some of the yogurt lime cilantro sauce, and enjoy!  How easy was that?
