2 prepared fresh crab, approx 250g mixed white and brown crabmeat
2 spring onions, finely chopped
1 large red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh coriander, finely chopped
2 tbsps Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial
2 tbsps olive oil
1 tbsp fresh mint leaves
1 bag rocket
2 slices medium sliced white bread
– Place the crab in a bowl, add the finely chopped spring onions, chilli, a good squeeze of lime juice and the chopped coriander, stir together and season to taste.
– Peel and cube the mango and avocado, mix with the torn mint and rocket leaves. Mix together the cordial and olive oil, add a squeeze of lime juice and toss into the salad.
– To make the melba toast curls, toast the bread on both sides, remove the crusts and cut each piece in half horizontally. Cut into 4 triangles and toast until lightly golden.
– To serve, use a metal ring to hold the salad in a circle on a plate, top with a layer of the crab mix, carefully lift the ring off and serve garnished with the melba toasts or simply serve spooned onto a plate in the two layers.
