Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp salted butter, plus a few bits extra for browning
  • 50 ml sherry
  • 1 cooked crab, in the shell
  • 1 handfuls finely chopped parsley
  • 1 handfuls fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 small handfuls parmesan

Method

    1. Gently fry the shallot and garlic in butter until softened. Pour in the sherry and bring to a simmer.
    2. Add the crab meat, reserving the shell. Warm through for 4-5 minutes then stir in the parsley.
    3. Spoon the mixture back into the crab shell. Sprinkle the top with breadcrumbs and grate over a little parmesan and add a grind of black pepper. Place a few dots of butter on top.
    4. Put under a hot grill for 1-2 minutes to crisp the bread and melt the cheese.
    5. Serve with toast.
