Easy Crab Pâté recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

This is probably the simplest crab pâté you'll ever make - white crab meat, brown crab meat, mayonnaise, lemon juice and fresh coriander combine to make a rich, tasty pâté. Serve with warm bread.


  • 50g white crab meat
  • 50g brown crab meat
  • 2 tsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped coriander
  • Lemon juice, to taste
  • Salt and pepper
  • Pinch of paprika


1. Combine the white meat, brown meat, mayonnaise, coriander, salt, pepper, paprika and as much lemon juice as you like to taste. Spoon into a ramekin or serving dish and leave in the fridge until you're ready to serve.

Some finely chopped chives would be a welcome addition to this dish, although you can use the herbs of your choice. Recipe serves 4.
