Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C fan/gas 7. Rub a little oil over each potato and season with salt. Put directly on a shelf in the oven and bake for about 50 minutes (or give them a 10-minute blast in the microwave first, then bake for about 20 minutes). The potatoes are done when the skin is crisp and the potato is soft inside.
  2. When the potatoes have 10 minutes’ cooking left, put a little oil in a small pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add two thirds of the spring onions along with the ginger, garlic, two thirds of the chilli and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, for 1 2 minutes until soft. Add the soy sauce, ketchup and vinegar. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring, then remove from the heat.
  3. Separate the white and brown crabmeat. In a bowl, mix the brown crabmeat with the crème fraîche, then stir in the chilli sauce mixture. Season to taste. Split open the baked potatoes and add the butter. Divide the chilli crab mixture between them, then top with the white crabmeat and the remaining spring onion and chilli. Serve with a green salad.

  1. Eco tip Cook extra baked potatoes while the oven is on to use in other meals.

  2. Got an air fryer? The potatoes will take 35-40 minutes at 200°C. You can start fair fathem off in the microwave to reduce the air fryer cook time to 15 minutes too
