    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    2 x 90g packs samphire
    1 lemon, zest and juice
    1 large fennel bulb, sliced as thinly as possible
    small handful mint leaves, chopped
    1 baby gem lettuce, leaves separated and roughly torn
    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    100g fresh white crab meat
    10 blanched hazelnuts, toasted and chopped



    1. Cook the samphire in a pan of boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and plunge into a bowl of cold water. Once cool, drain well and put into a large bowl.

    3. Divide between plates and add the remaining crab, toasted hazelnuts and a splash more olive oil, if liked.
