Directions

1. To prepare tomatillo & lime salsa, in a medium-size bowl, combine tomatillos, green onion, lime peel, lime juice, sugar, and salt; set aside. (At this point, the salsa can be covered and refrigerated for up to 4 hours; stir before serving.)
2. Brush tortillas lightly with hot water; stack, wrap in foil, and heat in a 350°F (175°C) oven until warm (10 to 12 minutes.)
3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a wide nonstick frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. When oil is hot add garlic and red onion; stir-fry until onion begins to brown (about 5 minutes). Add chiles and half the tomatoes; stir-fry until tomatoes are soft (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat and gently stir in crab.
4. Divide lettuce among tortillas; then top tortillas equally with crab mixture, remaining tomatoes, and cilantro. Top with tomatillo & lime salsa and sour cream. Garnish with lime wedges
