I would like to thank whoever taught me that picking over crabmeat for shells is best done in a *metal* bowl, so you can *hear* the shell pieces your eyes and fingers missed.
So had crab set aside in lime juice, chopped a shallot, crushed some garlic, cut up a half-zucchini and a defrosted cod fillet into pieces that ranged from small dice to large chunks. Melted a rather lot of butter, turned on kettle, cooked shallots in the butter with some smoked paprika and a smidge of cayenne, after a bit added garlic, after a bit added zucch, tossed till small zucch pieces almost done, then added rather a lot of white wine, cooked down till big zucch chunks almost cooked, added fish, tossed till big fish pieces almost done, then added some boiling water and chicken [better than] bouillon, and when it came back to the boil added the crab and lime juice, stirred, turned off, did something else for about 5 mn, then ate. Yum, yum, yum.
