Cooking time: 30min
Serves: 4

Ingredients: 1. 400gms white crab meat 2. 1 small Lebanese cucumber; chopped finely 3. 1 small red onion; chopped finely 4. For the dressing: Juice of 1 lemon 2 tbsp sesame oil 1 tsp garlic paste 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves 5 mint leaves; finely chopped 1 green chilli; chopped finely 1 tsp jaggery/palm sugar 1 tbsp fish sauce 5. Salt, to season 6. ½ tbsp coriander leaves; finely chopped for garnish Optional: 7. Mini masala pappads 8. Kashmiri chilli powder; for garnish 9. Lemon slices; for garnish #Method: Note – It is best to purchase cleaned crab meat from your fish vendor. But if you are buying whole crabs, then buy large ones and boil for a couple of minutes with salt; pick out the meat carefully ensuring that there are no shell pieces. 1. Add the finely chopped cucumber and onion to the crab meat. 2. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients required for the dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning as required (the measurements should only be taken as a guideline as the taste can vary according to the variety/brand of the ingredients). 3. Add ¾ ths of the dressing to the crab meat just before serving; season with salt and mix lightly. Taste and add more dressing if necessary. 4. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve immediately as a salad. Optional: This salad can also be a gorgeous looking canapé. • Fry mini pappads (or any other wafer), drain well on a kitchen paper. Pappads can be roasted but frying keeps it crispy for longer. • Just before serving, arrange the pappads on a platter; spoon a little of the salad on each pappad and garnish with a pinch of Kashmiri chilli powder. Serve immediately with lemon wedges. • Enjoy!! 100+ varieties of seafood | Customised cuts | Chemical-free | Supreme quality. Supreme Seafood Home Delivery in chennai
