mud crab in blackbean sauce
I like to eat what I paint. Him indoors took me to the boathouse restaurant on Saturday night and mud crab was a special on the menu. We got the last one.
I had not come across these things before I got to Australia. Once you manage to crack into the extremely hard shell of the claws, you have the sweetest crab meat imaginable. This one was smothered in blackbean and chilli sauce.
And no, you can't eat whole crab daintily. Ever. Uhuh.
