    Watch how to crack a lobster

    Lobster – there’s nothing quite like it, especially when it’s freshly caught by our boats off the Devon coastline.

    Perfect little mouthfuls of spice and crunch, these tasty crab bites are quick to put together (especially as you can make the crab mixture up to three hours in advance and keep it in the fridge) – but don’t assemble them until you’re ready to serve, or the poppadoms will become soggy.
