Method:

Pepper sauce:

1. Place all the pepper sauce ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil while stirring.

2. Reduce the sauce by 30%. Next, blitz the mixture in a blender to make a thick sauce. 

Pepper butter:

1. Toast pepper in a dry pan on medium heat until the oil is extracted. Roughly crush the pepper with a mortar. Melt the butter and add the crushed pepper. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

2. Add the pepper butter to the thick pepper sauce and bring to the boil before pouring the mixture over the cracked crab claws.

3. Use a wok or place the dish in the oven to heat the crab claws. Garnish the pepper crab with chopped coriander leaves before serving.

Enjoy!

You can make peppercrab on any crab claws, but for the full authentic experience, order it from the menu at Ansnes Brygger restaurant, or get your hands on real Hitracrab in well-stocked supermarkets in Norway ... or France!

You see, the Hitracrab is not like any other crab, and that's why it gets exported around the world.

The crab thrives in this area outside Hitra, with high water quality and exceptionally correct temperatures, providing the very best conditions for crabs to grow big and meaty.

And, in late summer and autumn the quality is at its best!
