We were at Cromer over the weekend, and Cromer is the place for British North Sea crab. We found a very nice fishmonger on Garden on garden Street called Davies, and bought three nice dressed crabs. I have previously posted my recipe for crab and pasta salad. This time I went with crab and tomato with some sweetcorn thrown in for good measure.
- Dressed Crabs 2 large or 3 medium
- Bell Pepper 1/4 small
- Vine Ripened Tomatoes 2
- Mayonnaise 2 Tbs
- Spring Onions 2
- Ground Black Pepper large pinch
- Sweetcorn 1 ear
- Salt to taste
- Water for prep
Bring a medium pan of water to a boil and place the corn in it. Boil for 3 or 4 minutes, then remove and allow corn to cool. Dice the bell pepper and tomatoes and place in a large bowl. Remove any rough outer layers of the spring onion and dice the onions as well. Add the onion and crab meat to the bowl. Using a sharp knife cut the kernels from the cob and add to the bowl as well. Add the mayo and stir until in forms a uniform texture. Serve over a bed of lettuce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
