Mac 'n' Cheese with Fresh Cornish Crab Meat Mac 'n' Cheese with Fresh Cornish Crab Meat

Who doesn't love a Mac 'n' Cheese, and this one is taken to a new level with the addition of fresh Cornish crab meat! Made with mature cheddar and parmesan cheese and seasoned with a fabulous mix of Cornish sea salt blended with four peppers, this comes highly recommended!

  1. Start with cooking the macaroni... following the instructions on the pack for quantities and cooking times. Drain well
  2. Whilst its cooking, make the cheese sauce (in a shallow pan) by melting the butter and then stirring in the flour to form a paste. Gradually add in the milk, stirring continuously (use a whisk if you prefer) until you get a nice thickish, lump free sauce. Add in the macaroni, cheese and the brown crab meat. Season (I used this fabulous salt and pepper mix from the Cornish Salt Company) and stir in well
  3. Finally, sprinkle the white crab meat over the top, along with a bit more grated parmesan and pop under a moderate grill to brown nicely on the top. Finish with a sprinkling of herbs

I'm Siân, a passionate foodie all my life... I started out working with hotels and restuarants in London, to get young people into the industry and develop their basic skills. Moves and changes over the years have taken me in broader directions, but with a different work/life balance now, I'm back to food... sharing easy, healthy meal ideas for you to experiment yourself with in the kitchen! There's lots of fish, beans and vegetables! Happy cooking!
