Mix together crab, lemon juice & zest, red bell pepper, chopped scallion, chopped cilantro, grapeseed oil and salt in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for approximately 20 minutes.

For coulis, in a bowl mix together the avocados, lime juice, grapeseed oil, salt, pepper and coriander until smooth.

Cut each tortilla into three two inch rounds (a Mason jar lid works great).

Fry tortilla rounds in hot oil until golden brown, drain on a paper towel and cool.

TO SERVE: Place fried tortilla rounds on a plate and spoon equal amount of crab mixture on each tortilla. Top tortilla with coulis and garnish with cilantro leaves.
