Last two weeks, while I was doing my grocery shopping at NTUC Fair Price, I saw this big crab on the wet section of NTUC. It has been a long time since I had a crab. I can't even remember the date. The usual seafood I usually eat here in Singapore is just the prawn, which I love to cook in Tamarind Soup (Sinigang na Hipon). And it's very easy to cook. Does this post make you hungry? Hahaha.
Anyway, I was supposed to write this last week, but my laziness hinder me from doing it. Thanks by the way to the help of my lady friends (Ate Lorena and Sheila) who helped me with the instructions on how to cook this one. By the way, if you're buying a crab and would not immediately cook it, put it in a pan without water then just let it steam until it turns to orange. Store it in your refrigerator and not in your freezer.
Here are the ingredients:
* coconut milk
* salt and pepper
* Maggi Magic Sarap or Ginisa Mix
* long beans (sitaw)
* chopped garlic and onion
1. On a bowl, mix the coconut milk, garlic, onion, ginisa mix and the long beans. Add more salt and pepper depending on your taste.
2. Add the crab then mix.
3. Put on a low fire then cover. Make sure not to mix. It usually makes a foam so don't worry it's natural.
4. You're alimango sa gata is ready when you see oil coming out of the coconut milk.
Serve with hot rice and I recommend to use your hands to eat :) Yummy!
