    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 2 as a main, 4 as a starter

    Ingredients

    395g can Waitrose Cherry Tomatoes
    1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    1 large piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated (about 50g)
    3 tbsp demerara sugar
    1 tbsp red wine vinegar
    2 x 100g packs Seafood and Eat It Cornish White Crab
    100g fresh breadcrumbs
    2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
    Juice of ½ lemon
    1 medium free range egg, beaten
    2 tbsp sunflower oil

    Method

    1. First, prepare the jam. Place the tomatoes in a pan with the sliced chilli, half the garlic and half the ginger. Add the sugar and vinegar, heat gently to dissolve then bring to the boil and simmer for 25 - 30 minutes until thickened. Leave it as it is for a coarse texture, or for a purée blitz in a blender or processor until smooth.

    2. Place the crab in a medium bowl with the remaining garlic and ginger, the breadcrumbs, coriander, lemon juice and seasoning. Mix in the egg and shape into 8 patties. Chill until ready to cook.

    3. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the crab cakes and fry over a medium heat for 3 - 4 minutes, turning once until golden and crisp. Serve with the tomato chilli jam and a handful of spinach, watercress and rocket salad.
