With delicate white meat and flavour-packed dark meat, crab is a fantastic flavour ‘2-in-1’ - although the thought of tackling a live crab in the kitchen might seem a little daunting. This collection of easy crab recipes will make it a pain-free process (provided you mind out for their claws!), with further guides on how to cook crab and how to remove meat from a crab for an even smoother cooking experience.
Crab is a super addition to comfort foods - next time hunger strikes try Nathan Outlaw’s crab, Cheddar and chive omelette, or a plateful of Dominic Chapman’s Alaska king crab linguine. Martin Wishart’s crab cake recipe is packed full of Asian flavours and can be put together in just half an hour, or for something a little more delicate, Kevin Mangeolles’ crab, grapefruit and mint salad is beautifully zesty.
