Ah Crap!...I Mean...Crab


Guess what we had for dinner? S$11.50 for about 850g. Cooked it at about noon and served it cold for dinner later. Not as much meat as I expected even though it was one of the bigger crabs in the tank. Forgot to snap a pix of it being served...heh...it wasn't bad. Maybe next time, will try doing some white pepper crabs which is one of me favorites.

Bet you thought I forgot but it's now five down and one to go! Haven't been eating much ice cream at home cos of all the Japanese snacks I brought back.

You have to get really large crustaceans for there to be any significant meat - there is not a whole lot in the carapace. What you really want is a big fat claw.

Hey Richard! Great to see u back! Yah, I was looking for a big claw too. Trying to find some cool crab recipes at the same time but no luck so far.

u killed that crab all by yourself???!!! *bowing in awe*

Cavalock said...

yah, i killed it! Took me 3 chopsticks to do it!

PS. i also the one who kills any lizards in the house.

Richard said...

Wouldn't it just be simpler to put it in some salted water and boil it to death?

Cavalock said...

Oh no, everyone i spoke to said that that would too slow and painful for the crab. When you stab it with the chopstick, it tends to shit out all the crap for you to clean.
