Spicy Rainbow Crab


  • 200g fresh crab meat
  • 3 small bell peppers – the more colour variety you have- the better, make sure you de-seed them and slice length-wise and then chop. I used three different colours- yellow, red, orange for maximum rainbow effect!
  • 2 small jalapeños, de-seeded and sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • to taste
  • garnish with a herb of choice- I would go for coriander but chives work perfectly too
  • 2 limes, juice


Open a chilled crab container, place your serving plate on top, and tip over. You should have a round stack of crab meat. Place colored peppers around it, with spicy jalapeños on top. Pour lime juice and olive oil on top. Sprinkle with a generous amount of sea salt to counterbalance the acidity of the lime and add freshly ground black pepper. Add extra herbs if you wish!
