Crab Canapés

Nikki's favourite way of serving crab as a canapé

We asked Nikki, co-owner of Crab Shed Salcombe, to share her favourite way of serving Crab Shed Salcombe's deliciously light white crab meat. Not a recipe as such, more a serving suggestion that takes only minutes to prepare. A popular pre-dinner nibble in the Horne household!

White crab meat canapés

Take a suitable quantity of white crab meat, set to one side.

Mix together a small finely chopped mild chilli, squeeze of lemon or lime, chopped fresh dill or parsley and black pepper. Stir in a teaspoon of mayonnaise and a teaspoon of natural yoghurt.  Mix with the crab meat.

Place on small oat crackers, crostini, little gem lettuce or slices of cucumber with a sprinkle of paprika on top.

We've been busy cooking and hand-picking our delicious crab meat, brought to us by local fishing boats, which is available for local collection to enjoy at home. Take a look at our Recipes section for serving suggestions!
