Dessert Crab Recipe

Dessert Crab



How to make Dessert Crab

It is served cold and after meals, somewhat like dessert. It's great even if you feel way too full, it somewhat soothes your overstuffed bloated feeling.

  1. Remove the triangle from the underside of the crabs shell and wash the crab.
  2. Steam the crab on a shallow bowl/deep plate for 20 minutes.
  3. Shove crab into the fridge for about an hour, well basically until it's cold.
  4. Eat as a dessert. :)

Very interesting to have after a complete meal. I was introduced to this dish recently. Ignore the pasta words on my plate, I had no other plate deep enough to place the crab in, a flat plate is a no no because the boiling water can get onto the plate.

    you can squeeze a lemon onto the meat of the crab if you like, it makes it more tart.

    probably should point out that you should never put hot or warm things in the fridge as they will mess with the ambient temperature and you could contaminate the rest of the food in there. if you want to cool it I guess you could plunge it in ice water first?
