You can’t beat freshly cooked crab with good mayonnaise. I prefer to tackle the crab myself, armed with crackers and a finger bowl rather than buy ready-prepared crab, which can be disappointing. Fresh white meat has a superb taste and texture. The brown meat, however, can be a little dry, but combining it with a few flavourings and some mayonnaise transforms it into something else.
