This is on a par with a good crab sandwich. If possible, buy a live crab and cook and prepare it yourself (using the shells for a soup), or get your fishmonger to do it for you. I’m always a bit suspicious of pre-packed crab meat unless you have a very trustworthy source. The brown crab meat can be a little wet once prepared; if so, drain off the watery juices and mix in some fresh white or brown breadcrumbs to thicken it up a bit.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300-350g brown crab meat
150-200g white crab meat
salt
freshly ground white pepper
2-3 tablespoons good-quality mayonnaise
4 slices good-quality brown bread
butter, for spreading
1 small lemon, quartered, to serve

Method

  1. Break up the brown crab meat in a bowl using a fork, season with salt and pepper and mix with mayonnaise to taste.
  2. Toast the bread on both sides and spread with butter. Spoon the brown crab onto the toast and scatter over the white meat. Grind over some pepper and serve with lemon wedges.
