Ingredients

Red Pepper-Mango Vinaigrette: 

Crispy Stone Crab and Squid Salad:

Directions

  1. For the vinaigrette: Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth; season with honey, salt and pepper to taste.
  2. For the crab and squid salad: Fill a large saucepan halfway with the oil and heat until it reaches 350 degrees F on a deep-fry thermometer. Line a large plate or baking sheet with paper towels, set aside.
  3. Whisk together the flour and 1 1/2 cups of the water in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. The mixture should resemble crepe batter; if it is too thick add more water a few tablespoons at a time. Then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Season squid and crab with salt and pepper and working in batches, dip 1/3 of the squid in the rice flour batter and allow the excess to drip off. Fry until lightly golden brown and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on the paper towel-lined plate and season immediately with salt. Repeat with the remaining squid and crab, dipping into the batter then frying in batches.
  5. Place the greens in a bowl and drizzle with about 1/4 cup of the mango-red pepper vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper. Mound the greens on a platter and place some of the sliced cherry peppers on top. Place the squid and crab around the perimeter of the platter, drizzle all with more of the vinaigrette and garnish with cilantro leaves and chopped mint.
