Ingredients

  • 400g crabmeat
  • large pinch cayenne pepper
  • zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 300g butter
  • fresh parsley leaves, to decorate

Method

  • STEP 1

    Combine crab, cayenne, lemon juice and zest, and season well. Pack into 8 small or 1 large ramekin. Melt the butter, then pour over until the crab is covered with a thin film. Top with a parsley leaf if you like, then cool in the fridge. (It will keep for up to 2 days in the fridge.) To prevent the butter melting, transport to your picnic in a chiller bag.
