Mud crab in a light marinade cooked in foil, juicy and delicious.

Serves: 2 

  • fresh mud crab, cleaned and broken up
  • vinegar (your preference), 1/8 of a cup
  • extra virgin olive oil, 1/8 of a cup
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic (don't even think of using powdered), minced
  • salt + freshly ground black pepper

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Clean the crab, break into chunks and crack the claws with the back of a knife.
  2. Put crab onto a large double thickness piece of foil.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  4. Pour marinade over crab and make the foil into a sealed bag.
  5. Place on the hotplate for around 8-10 minutes, until the shell has all turned red.


I like this with a simple salad and maybe some decent crusty bread
