Heat 2 tablespoons water in a small pan over a medium heat, add the butter and stir until it emulsifies.
Add the garlic, chilli and pepper and simmer for a couple of minutes. Add the crab meat, most of the coriander, a pinch of salt and lime juice to taste and stir until smooth and creamy.
Spoon into small bowls and garnish with coriander. Serve with rice, a fresh green salad and lime wedges, if you like.
You can often buy crab meat in 100g tubs. You can also buy ready-prepared dressed crab, which has a higher proportion of brown meat. Cooked prawns would be a good alternative to crab and it’s also delicious served with warm sourdough bread instead of rice.
