Potted crab with a hint of lemon

I bought a huge English crab from Devon and I used the boiling method to dispatch it to crab heaven and then painstakingly picked all the meat.

One of the dish I made from some of the meat is potted crab. This is extremely easy to make and taste good if you are a fan of crab. I made it the same way as potted shrimps just using crab.

However do not try to make this from tin crab as it won’t taste as good. The fresh crab taste very sweet and juicy! I had a hard job trying not to eat it all when I was picking it.
