Ingredients
  • Pea Soup:
  • 2 cups frozen sweet peas, run under cool water to thaw
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Spicy Crab:
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon red chili paste, such as Sambal
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 cup fresh lump crab meat, picked through
  • 1/4 bunch fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • Pinch sea salt
Directions

Blend the peas and vegetable broth in a blender until smooth. Take the lid off and, with the motor running, pour in the oil in a steady stream to emulsify the mixture. Add the lemon juice then chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

To make the spicy crab, whisk the canola oil, chili paste, and lemon juice together in a bowl. Fold in the crabmeat and mint and season with a pinch of salt. Fill espresso or sake cups, about 3/4 full, with the chilled pea soup. Garnish the pea shots with a generous tablespoon of the spicy crab and serve immediately.
