Fresh Crab in Vinaigrette Salad
8 oz (225 g) mixed prepared crab meat (this is using 2 half-shells)
4 small cornichons (Continental gherkins), finely chopped
1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped (or, if they're small, leave them whole)
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
finely grated zest 1 lime
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tablespoon white wine
1 tablespoon light olive oil
a few drops Tabasco sauce
salt and freshly milled black pepper
a few crisp salad leaves or some watercress
It couldn't be simpler: all you do is combine all the ingredients in a bowl, then divide the
mixture into two. Take each quantity, pile it on a plate and use your hands to form it into
a round, flattened shape about ½ inch (1 cm) high. Garnish with some crisp salad leaves
or watercress all round.
