Black Pepper Crab



An old family favourite, inspired by my mum's uncle who used to make it for special occasions. A restaurant quality dish made with just a few ingredients. Once the juices from the fresh blue swimmers mix in with the black pepper sauce you have this amazing sweet and peppery dish that will want you eating crab more often.
