Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozSmall red-skinned potatoes
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSalt
1 cup 62g / 2.2ozSnow crab meat
3   Scallions, white part only - finely chopped
2 tablespoons 30mlFinely-chopped Italian parsley
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlGrated lemon zest
1 tablespoon 15mlOlive oil
2 teaspoons 10mlFresh lemon juice
  Freshly-ground black pepper - to taste
  Shredded iceberg lettuce - for garnish
  Sliced seedless cucumber - for garnish

Recipe Instructions

Cut the potatoes, with their skins, in half or quarter them, making roughly 1-inch pieces. Put the potatoes in a deep pot. Add cold water to a depth of 2 inches over the potatoes. Over high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high, and cook until the potatoes are easily pierced with the tip of a knife, about 15 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and transfer to a mixing bowl. Add the crabmeat, scallion, parsley and lemon zest to the potatoes. Toss with a fork to combine. Mix in the oil and lemon juice to coat the potatoes. Season the salad to taste with pepper. (Note: Snow crab can be salty. But if you wish, season the salad with additional salt to taste when adding the ground pepper.)

Serve, mounded on a bed of shredded lettuce, surrounded by sliced cucumbers.
