HOW TO SELECT A PERFECT CRAB FOR A PERFECT CRAB CURRY DISH?
It is so important to choose a fresh Crab to make This curry crab dish. I always use fresh Ingredients for my dish. In my Today’s dish, I use fresh Local Mud crabs from the local fish market and I cooked the crabs immediately to preserve the freshness as much as possible.
If Mud crab is not available in your nearby fish market just use any sea water crabs or blue crabs for today’s dish. You can choose either male or female crab or both. But I experienced female crabs taste good over male crabs. Always just after buying the crab cut and clean them. In the fish market If you see crabs are already dead more than 5 hours or smell very bad, my advice not to buy them.
Actually, If the crabs have been dead for a while, the meat becomes soft, pulpy and tasteless when cooked. If you wish to buy pre-packed frozen crab from the supermarket, then always try your trusted seafood brand. But buy crab fresh from the market is always best for your health, money worthy and It will taste more than the frozen one.
