200g white Crab meat, 200g Brown Crab meat, 200g mascapone, 2 tablespoons soured cream, 1 small onion (finely chopped), 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1 clove garlic (crushed), half a teaspoon smoked paprika, 1 tablespoon Henderson’s relish,
200g grated mature Cheddar, 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley, 1-2 fresh green chillies (finely sliced), fresh bread for dipping.
Method, cream the mascarpone, mustard and soured cream together, then add
the onion, garlic, Henderson’s relish, smoked paprika, 2/3s of the cheddar and
parsley, stir this through before add the crab meat.
Mix until well combined and
then place into an ovenproof dish, sprinkle over the remainder of the cheddar
