Simple Dressed Crab
|Crab||3 Pound (One In Number)|
|Lemon juice||1 Teaspoon (Leveled) (A Little)|
|French dressing||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Hard boiled egg||1|
Pick the crab meat from the shells.
Mix the dark crab meat with salt and pepper, fresh breadcrumbs and a little lemon juice if liked.
The breadcrumbs are optional but they lessen the richness and give a firmer texture.
Press the mixture lightly against the sides of the previously cleaned shell.
Flake up the white meat, mix with French dressing and pile in the centre of the shell.
Garnish with sieved egg yolk, chopped egg white, chopped parsley, sieved coral if any, and decorate with small claws.
Make a necklace with the small claws, place on a dish and rest the crab on this.
Surround with salad.
