    What to do with Fresh Crab Meat? In the UK!

    Hi, I'm in the UK so that's why I'm posting here rather than in one of the US forums, as I'd rather talk to UK cooks - or rather cooks in the UK .
    Okay, I just got a crab from Tescos the other day and just finished disembowelling it.
    Now I've eaten crab before so I know I like it (had some of the large claw meat with a salad yesterday), but I've never before had to take the meat out of the crab myself (It was cheaper than a ready dressed crab).
    I'll post a pic of what I've managed to get out of the crab, but I'm a little uncertain - I thought crab meat was either white or brown, but what I've ended up with is a lot of bright orange meat, a little dull yellow meat and the white meat from the claws and some from inside the shell.
    1) Are all those different colours of meat okay to eat?
    2) any tasty ideas what to cook with it?
    Orange? (I have a couple of oranges handy) (maybe some sort of orange sauce?)
    anything else?
    No chilli please! No hots!
    I like garlic though and ginger.
    Tasty Tidbits

    Sorry nobody got back to you on this! I am no help either. I can't eat shell fish so I have never had to solve this problem!

    That's okay, thanks for talking to me at least.

    I managed to get just 4 meals out of this, with 2 salads and 2 sandwiches - but I ended up throwing most of it away and I've been banned from ever having it again.

    The smell from our kitchen bin was.... horrendous, and unfortunately the black bag leaked all over the floor when it was removed from the bin - so we had a massive and very smelly clean up job.

    So I can only have crab (or lobster either) in a restaurant, but we go so rarely to restaurants, that I'd prefer to have things I know I'm going to like. Like salmon, chicken or prawns.

    Oh well, that episode is now over, and at least I satisfied my curiosity.
