Crab

Crab Enlarge

This ten-legged creature scuttles along the seabed and can also be found on the beach. The crab makes sideways motions, one half of the crab pulling the other half forwards. By constantly switching sides, the crab moves along the ground.

Besides the more familiar species such as the North Sea crab and King crab, there are a number of other types of crab, all differing in terms of size, colour and habitat.

The soft stringy flesh of the crab is predominantly white in colour with the addition of different coloured tinges depending on the species.

Basic techniques: boiling, steaming, poaching, grilling, marinating, cooking in a vacuum sealer bag, barbecuing.

Taste combinations: cucumber, melon, avocado, white asparagus, green asparagus, curry, Ras el Hanout, celery, courgette, sea vegetables, chicory, fennel, sorrel, watercress
