Remove the spongy parts under the side joints and the aprons from twelve medium, fresh soft-shell crabs.

Lift up, drain on a cloth, sprinkle half teaspoon salt over, arrange on six freshly prepared toasts and decorate with six quarters of lemon and a little fried or green parsley.

Procure three three-quarter-pound steaks from a leg of tender spring lamb. Make a few incisions all around the skin and season all over with a teaspoon salt and half teaspoon pepper.

Pour a gill of tomato sauce (No. 16) in the pan in which the steaks were cooked, add half teaspoon freshly chopped parsley, lightly mix, boil for five minutes, then pour over the steaks and serve.
