Shellfish Recipes: Clams, Crab, Lobster, Oysters, Scallops & Shrimp



(Directions for Cookery, 1851)

Having taken all the meat out of the shells, make a dressing with sweet oil, salt, cayenne pepper, mustard and vinegar, as for lobster.  You may add to it some hard-boiled yolk of egg, mashed in the oil.

Put the mixture into the back-shells of the crabs, and serve it up.

Garnish with the small claws laid nicely round.
