You'll need

450 gm cooked crabmeat 60 gm (¼ cup) sour cream 2 tbsp mayonnaise 2 tbsp each finely chopped chives, parsley and dill Finely grated rind of 1 lemon, juice of ½ 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce To taste: Tabasco To serve: thinly sliced spring onion   Celery seed crackers 200 gm (1 1/3 cups) plain flour 50 gm (1/3 cup) wholemeal spelt flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing 2 tsp celery seeds

Method

  • 01
  • For celery seed crackers, combine flours, baking powder and 1 tsp fine sea salt in a bowl. Add oil and 120ml water and stir to combine. Bring together with your hands, turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly to form a smooth dough (6-8 minutes), then pat into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate to rest (30 minutes). Preheat oven to 200C. Divide dough into 2 and roll each out to 1mm-thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 7cm-thick strips, then cut each strip into rough triangles and transfer to oven trays lined with baking paper. Brush with oil, scatter with celery seeds, and bake in batches until golden and crisp (4-6 minutes), then set aside to cool. Celery seed crackers will keep stored in an airtight container for 2 days.

  • Combine crab, sour cream, mayonnaise, herbs, lemon rind and juice, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco to taste, season to taste and refrigerate until required. Just before serving, scatter with spring onion and serve with celery seed crackers.
