Crabes Farcis. Chop a little fat bacon very finely and mix with bread, previously soaked in milk. Brown the mixture slightly in a little butter, with 1 clove of garlic, chives and chilli pepper, all finely chopped. Mix with the chopped and cooked crab meat, fill the shells with the stuffing, sprinkle with breadcrumbs, and put in a fairly brisk oven for 20 to 25 minutes. This is a most excellent dish, especially when made with some of the delicious West Indies crabs.
