To Butter Lobsters, Crabs or Crafish


Take out their Meat and Mince it small, and set it over a Chafing dish of Coals with a little white Wine, a little Salt, and a blade of Mace, and when it is very hot, put in some Butter and some Crums of white bread, then warm the shells against the fire, and fill them again with their Meat, and so serve them in.

You may do Shrimps or Prawns thus, only you must not put them into the shells, again, but garnish your Dish with them.
