Summer Skin in a Bowl

8th June 2015



Nutritional therapist and healthy eating expert Amelia Freer prepares a crunchy Crab Salad with superfood ingredients to get skin glowing from the inside out.

“One of the key things for glowing skin is eating healthy fats and vitamins. Every single cell in our body has an outer layer of essential fatty acids on it. To keep this plump, we need to ensure that we’re eating good quality fats. Avocados and walnuts are perfect skin-friendly foods.  Additionally, Selenium which is found in the crab is an antioxidant mineral that helps to safeguard skin from sun damage, protecting skin quality and elasticity”


200g fresh crabmeat

1 avocado, peeled, stoned and cut into small cubes

2 celery sticks, cut into small pieces

1 courgette spiralized

1 bunch of radishes, topped and tailed then cut into small sticks with a mandolin

1 handful of shelled fresh peas

A handful of walnuts

1 tsp fresh root ginger, peeled and cut into thin sticks (you can also juice and add to the dressing if you prefer)

A handful of fresh coriander leaves

Half that amount of fresh mint leaves, cut into fine strips

For the dressing:

2 tbsp pink grapefruit juice

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp salt

1 tsp fresh ginger juice

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp coriander seeds, slightly toasted and crushed into a powder (ground coriander is fine if you don't have time)

Freshly cracked black pepper


To make the dressing, put the ginger and citrus juices into a bowl, add the salt and stir until dissolved. Add the ground coriander and pepper, then while whisking, slowly pour in the olive oil until combined.

Mix all the salad ingredients together in a large bowl, pour over the dressing and serve.
