Crab Claw Salad
This recipe is in categories Prehistoric, Salads, Snacks,
About this recipe:
This is a simple recipe. Breaking the crab claws takes a bit of force, using the end of a wooden rolling pin works well. In our podcast the claws were broken with smooth stones.
Number of servings:
Makes enough for 2.
Serve with oatcakes or a piece of bread.
This salad reflects the simplicity of pre-historic cooking. Ingredients are fresh, seasonal and often gathered locally.
You can buy goats cheese, use cream cheese or you could try making your own ( see our simple cheese recipe).
The creamy cheese is delicious with the crab, a suprisingly lovely combination.
