      Ingredients:

      3 baby globe artichokes
      juice and zest of a lemon
      100g white Cornish crab meat
      1 tsp garlic, peeled and crushed
      2 tsps snipped chives
      salt and pepper
      1½ tsps  good olive oil
      100g rocket leaves

      Preparation:
  • Remove the tough, outer leaves from the artichokes and slice the body of each as thinly as possible. 
  • A mandolin works well. 
  • Then squeeze on the juice of the lemon to prevent the slices from discolouring.
  • Mix with the crab, garlic, chives, lemon zest, salt and pepper, olive oil and a generous handful of rocket leaves. 
  • Serve right away.
