PREPERATION

COOKING THE CRAB

Cut the fresh crab into 2 sections, remove the legs from the body. In a saucepan, bring the water with 2 tablespoons of coarse salt to a boil and put the crab in it. Cook for 12 minutes. Once cooked, let cool and shell the crab to remove all the flesh, drain by pressing the flesh, then refrigerate until ready to prepare the croquettes.

* If you are using frozen cooked crab, let it thaw for 24 hours in the refrigerator then drain it by pressing the meat into a fine colander or a clean cloth.
