Crab & Crispy Wonton Salad

Crabmeat salad

When we lived in Gold Coast we have been to the seafood restaurants in Broadbeach. Yellowfin restaurant was one of our many choices. We went there few times and we loved the Happy Hour.

We liked to order Spanner Crab as our entree. I love the crispy and fresh taste of this salad. Recently I had guests come for lunch with us on a warm day. I made this dish and it was a big hit.  In my version of spanner crab, I don’t have green mango, replacing it with green apple and added chopped chestnut. It is crunchy and all my guests enjoy it.
