Happy Sunny Saturday, my lovelies.
Yes, summer is well and truly here and I’m throwing myself into summer life, good and proper. With simple hot day pleasures.
Cliff walks. Sea swims. Garden time. Day trips to neighbouring islands. And eating crab.
Just in case I haven’t mentioned it before (and that really would surprise me!), Guernsey 🇬🇬 crab is the best. The. Best. I’ve tasted crab around the world and nothing compares. Seriously, our crab beats all on texture, flavour, a hint of sweetness ...
And if you don’t believe me, pop over here and try it for yourself!!!
So it is no surprise that my summer meal of preference is crab. We always take a crab sandwich lunch to our neighbouring
island paradise, Herm, which we visited a few days ago, it’s a little tradition we’ve had going for some years. And we had some crab left in the fridge and the day was hot so I came up with this little bit of summer magic - Guernsey 🇬🇬 Crab Sundae!
So simple, yet so yummy. Putting the salad in sundae glasses brings the spirit of summer to the table, IMHO.
Quite simply, this is how I put it together, for that is all it us, assembly.
Mix a dollop of mayo with fresh crab (Guernsey 🇬🇬 Chancre is my crab of choice, obvs).
Add a squeeze of lime juice. Season lightly.
Mix in delicate ribbons of lettuce, finely chopped red onion and tomato (again, I recommend Guernsey 🇬🇬 toms).
Layer the salad mix in sundae glasses with chopped avocado and finely sliced red chilli.
Take out into the summer garden. Fill pretty glasses with sparkling water, ice cubes and slices of lemon and lime.
And here’s a taster of my day trip to paradise. Setting off from Guernsey.
Pictures of paradise coming up soon on the blog.
A la perchoine,
