Crab, avocado, coconut, basil

Bought some crab legs today. Just boiled them for a couple minutes, extracted and chopped up the meat. Avocado medium dice, coconut milk and whipped homemade creme fraiche, lime juice, yuzu marinated ginger, coconut flakes. Served with a lime-basil sauce and hot chili oil.

I'd like to add some crunch to this, some garnish, and cut back on the cream, which muted the flavors a bit.  I'd also like to boost the chili and citrus.  I'm not sold on this presentation, either.

The crab shells are in the freezer.  Next time I buy whole shrimp, I'm going to make some etouffee.  Probably next week sometime.
