Loving this wild food swap story from @edible.leeds
Bartered Crab Linguine. Yes, bartered not battered 😊 I had mackerel to spare & purposefully so, figuring I'd either give a few away or swap for something else. 4 mackerel got me 2 beers & a few crab. Crab was caught by a chap on hols with his young son, they popped a pot out & caught 2 both measured 16cm carapace to carapace. I cooked mine instantly, 15 mins in salted boiling water & then left it to cool naturally. This evening, in Mevagissey, I made crab linguine. Crab 🦀, Pasta, Shallot, Garlic, Fennel Seed (foraged), Lemon Zest & Juice, Chilli 🌶, Parsley, Fresh Pepper, Olive Oil. Off to catch some more mackerel now... .
