Method

  1. Put the crabmeat, crayfish tails and celery in a large mixing bowl. Add the mayonnaise, yuzu juice and black pepper and mix well. Cover, then chill until needed.
  2. Put a medium frying pan on a low-medium heat and add 30g of the butter. Once it’s melted, add the chopped garlic and fry for a couple of minutes, then add the samphire. Turn up the heat and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until glossy but not completely wilted (see Make Ahead).
  3. Put a griddle pan on a high heat. Halve the brioche rolls, spread with the remaining 20g butter, then griddle until charred and toasted.
  4. When ready to serve, reheat the samphire, if you like, then divide among the rolls. Top with the crabmeat mixture then drizzle with sriracha. Top with the micro herbs or watercress and eat without delay!

  1. Complete the recipe to the end of step 2 a few hours ahead. Keep the crab mix and samphire chilled (separately).

  2. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit with a flavour similar to lime, grapefruit and mandarin. It’s available from larger supermarkets and online.

  3. The bright lime flavour of a chilled Australian dry riesling is spot on with the crab rolls
