“I first come across with this product at Selfridges, and I just love it!  KanKun sauces are an Exciting product!! love its punchy flavours, consistency, colour and  fresh aroma, all  without  any nasty additives present.  Very convenient to use, this is a must have in your kitchen pantry, you will Have Fun Cooking with it”.

Jalapeños take the mildness of cucumber and crab up a notch, and add heat and colour to a dip so chunky, it’s almost a meal in itself. The trick is to let it chill for about an hour or two to let the flavours meld.  It can be served with crackers. 


Using freshly picked white crab meat, add jalapeño Kankun sauce for a fresh and zingy flavour. Accompany with cucumber and guacamole and dressed leaves.

For the Guacamole

  •  Large, ripe Avocados.
  •  Garlic Cloves, peeled
  • 100g red onions
  •  Lime, juiced
  • 60ml Olive Oil
  • Dash of Kankun jalapeño
  • 15g fresh Coriander (plus a few leaves for garnish)
  • 150g Cherry Tomatoes (quartered)
  • Sea Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper


Marinate Crab: Soak the crab, in the lemon juice with salt and Kankun Jalapeno sauce for 20mins in an environment about 20c .

Guacamole: Halve the Avocados and set the stones aside. Scoop the flesh of the avocado into the bowl with chopped Garlic, Chilli, Onions, 1/2 the Lime juice, Olive Oil, 15g Coriander, a dash of KanKun Jalapeno and some seasoning. Fold in the tomatoes. On serving, stir gently, and a bit more Lime juice.

This dish can be served as a starter or if you want a more casual approach serve it in small cups.  Have fun cooking!
