Mud Crabs
Mud Crabs are considered as a prized catch by fishermen and fishmongers for its rich taste and impressive size. Usually found in the muddy bottoms of coastal mangroves, they are sold simply due to their ability to survive out of water for days. Its moist meat has a distinct taste and sweet flavour. Its gracious legs and ornate structure makes it a grand affair on the table. The tried and tested methods of cooking mud crabs are steam, boil or poach in saline water.
