It’s mid May and the waters around South Devon have warmed up slightly after the cold winter. This is a simple, Springtime meal to satisfy those taste buds now that crab is back in season.
The warmer waters mean that Salcombe crabs are venturing out from their mini hibernation in the mud and from under rocks to satisfy their appetites and build themselves up to full strength. As the crabs eat more food, each crab will yield greater amounts of meat as we build up towards a crescendo in Autumn. Time to get going with some creative crab recipes such as this one below. If you feel like adding some richness to the recipe, add some brown crab meat for a real punch of flavour.
