Serves 22-24 toasts
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp crème fraîche
  • 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tsp finely chopped fresh tarragon, plus more
  • 1 tsp finely sliced fresh chives
  • 8 oz lump crab meat
  • Salt and freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 1 Harmons artisan baguette
  • Olive oil
  • Smoked paprika

In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, crème fraîche, lemon zest, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, tarragon, and chives. Fold in crab meat and season with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, mash avocado with remaining 1 teaspoon lemon juice and season with salt.

Preheat oven to 350°. Cut baguette into 1/4″ slices. Place slices on a rimmed baking sheet and pour oil into a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, brush baguette slices with oil and toast until lightly golden, about 12 minutes.

Spread avocado on toasts and top with crab salad. Sprinkle with paprika and tarragon.
