Quick Facts

Servings: 12
West Coast Fisheries


  • Corn or safflower oil for frying
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 1/2 lbs flaked, cooked crab meat
  • 2 bunches green onions, chopped
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 12 oz Monterey Jack cheese shredded, about 3 cups
  • 1 5 3/4 oz can pitted, jumbo, black olives
  • 1 large avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large tomato cut into wedges
  • Tomatilo Sauce1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 Tbs corn or safflower oil
  • 1 lb fresh tomatillos husked or 16 ounces canned tomatillos, drained
  • 1 Tbs chopped, canned, peeled, green chili
  • 2 Tbs minced fresh coriander
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Sour Cream Sauce1 Cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbs chopped fresh coriander or parsley
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 chopped green onion


  • Enchiladas:Heat 1/8-inch oil in a large frying pan and fry tortillas until lightly browned on the edges; drain on paper towels. Saute onions in butter until soft. Spread about cup of the crabmeat in a ribbon on each tortilla, sprinkle with onions and about 1 tablespoon of the tomatillo sauce and roll up. Arrange seam side down in a greased baking dish. Lightly spoon tomatillo sauce over and sprinkle with cheese. Bake in a pre-heated 400 F oven for 15 minutes, or until heated through. Garnish with olives. Arrange avocado slices and tomato wedges on top. Pass the sour cream sauce.
  • Tomatillo Sauce:In a frying pan, cook onion in oil until translucent, set aside. If using fresh tomatillos, cook in boiling, salted water to cover until tender, about 10 minutes; drain. Puree tomatillos in blender with just enough water to make a smooth sauce; add to onions. Add chili and coriander and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Sour Cream Sauce:Mix together the sour cream, coriander or parsley, salt, garlic, and green onion.
