Game-Changing Party Starter (AKA Seafood Tower)

This is an epic dish to start any dinner party or just good old Sunday night at home! Remember to cut the pieces of crab small so you can eat them with ease, and be careful cracking these crab clusters (their spikes are extremely sharp!)

  • 2 lemons, quartered
  • 12 fresh tarragon, chiffonade
  • Matty’s Cocktail Sauce, for dipping (recipe below)

WHAT YOU DO:

  1. To cut the crab, using kitchen shears, cut along the joint of the crab and make 2 cuts on either side of the crab leg exposing the meat. Remove the piece of cut crab shell exposing the meat however leave the meat within shell. Repeat with all the legs.
  2. To plate, place the crab legs, shrimp, oysters and lobster halves on a large serving platter with ice. Garnish with finely chopped tarragon and lemon quarters. Best served with a dish of Matty’s Cocktail Sauce.
