Crab Fries

Easy, tasty crab fries to make at home.

Crab Shed's Crab Fries is the favourite side dish at the restaurant. A key ingredient in the dish is Chef's own crab bisque which takes a bit of time to prepare. We therefore asked Head Chef Nick Muddeman to give us a simpler recipe without the bisque to make it quick and easy to make at home - but still super tasty. A side of chips/fries will never be the same again!

For the sauce:

  • 30g garlic butter
  • Splash of white wine
  • Lemon juice  
  • Sundried tomatoes  
  • 20g Crab Shed brown crab meat


  1. Cook all above for 2/3 minutes  
  2. Then add 10g Crab Shed white crab meat and a bunch of fresh parsley.
  3. Season to taste and if the sauce is too thin cook further to reduce.  
  4. Pour over a portion of crispy fries or chips.
