Preparation:

Cook the spider crab in plenty of boiling, salted water for 12 minutes with a few bay leaves.

Leave to cool and peel, removing all the shell. Keep the juices from inside the body. Hard-boil the egg and set aside.

Slice the onion and raw pepper in a fine julienne and mix with the crab flesh, chopped olives and parsley. Heat the saffron strands on a sheet of thin paper placed on the hot plate, to bring out their aroma.

Place the vegetable and crab mixture in a rectangular mold. Push the cooked egg yolk through a chinois, followed by the white, and add.

Mix the ingredients for the vinaigrette, season with salt and form an emulsion.

Turn out the mold to one side of the plate. Make a base with the sauce form the shell which can be diluted with a little cream. Top the cocktail with the leaves and fruits. Dress with the vinaigrette and garnish with the saffron pistils.
