This isn’t much of a recipe really… I was just flicking through some photos from a wonderful weekend earlier this year and was reminded of this delicious crab. Picking crabs is not the most enjoyable of activities – it’s long-winded and fiddly. However, when faced with a tiresome job like this two addtions can really help to make it bearable; a bottle of bubbles and a good friend to talk to. So armed with some Prosecco and my friend Frankie we set to gossip, oops, I mean work.
The crabs were bought from a fishmonger on the beach in a village called Beer, caught and boiled up that morning. They were about £2.50 each and utterly delicious. We mixed all the meat together with a little mayonaise, tabasco, lemon juice and a tiny bit of worcestershire sauce. Plenty of seasoning and served with some salad leaves. Super simple and super delicious. I couldn’t recommend it more.
Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures while we were preparing our crabs, to really understand how to do it pictures are probably helpful. Luckily however, Delia’s people have put together a very helpful step by step guide, just click here to see it.
