12 ½-inch-thick slices baguette
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Salt and ground black pepper
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped pimento
1 avocado, pitted and cubed
½ cup lump crab meat
Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
Brush each slice of baguette on both sides with some of the melted butter. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet, then season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake 6 to 7 minutes, or until toasted and lightly golden.
In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, Dijon mustard, hot sauce and olive oil. Gently stir in the chopped pimento, avocado cubes and crab meat.
Arrange the baguette slices on a serving platter. Top each with some of the avocado and crab salad.
