Crab Crumble (4)

A recipe from ” The Hidden Hut” by Simon Stallard. Its good to make this in winter in the UK when crabs are usually both cheaper to buy and richer in the brown meat which makes this dish rich and flavoursome. Two whole crabs will give you about the right amount of crabmeat for this dish.
