Cook with Jamie


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan and add the fennel seeds, mustard seeds, cardamom pods, cumin seeds, ginger, garlic, onion and chilli. Fry on a medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes until lightly golden, then add the turmeric, a splash of olive oil and the brown crabmeat. After a minute or so, pour in the coconut milk and a tinful of water. Let it simmer away for 5 minutes so all the flavours develop. Then add the lemon juice and simmer for another 10 minutes, or until the sauce resembles double cream in consistency.
  2. Just before you stir in the white crabmeat, check that all the shell has been picked out, then add half the coriander, simmer for 4 more minutes and taste. Season carefully with salt and pepper and a little more lemon juice if you think it needs it. Serve with some fluffy white rice, sprinkled with the rest of the coriander leaves.
