Instructions
  1. First task is, you guessed it, you have to pick all 12 crabs, putting the meat in a separate bowl, try to keep the meat in the largest chunks possible, pick everything. Save the top of the shells for use later to bake the crab in. Clean the tops and rinse them out and allow to dry.
  2. Heat a large non stick skillet with a splash of olive oil, then cook the diced potatoes until done, remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Same skillet, cook the onion and garlic until the onion is soft. Then gently fold in the crab meat, make sure you do not make it mushy. Then fold in the cooked potatoes, then fold in the red bell pepper, peas, and raisins. Gently mix in a dash of low sodium soy sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside, letting it cool.
  4. Preheat your oven to 190 C and get out a baking tray.
  5. Stuff each crab shell with the mixture, pack them tight and mound over the top, about 5-7 shells is what you will need. Brush each mound of filling with beaten egg and top with Panko breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the breadcrumbs start to get golden brown. Remove from oven, let cool 5 minutes. Serve, coleslaw, corn chowder or a green salad would be excellent sides.
Recipe Notes

Blue Crabs would cost about 200 Baht for 12 decent sized crabs, for 6 servings (this is based on 1 shell per person), this is about $1 per serving. Overall, not bad, but can be time consuming to put together.

  1. Not that it’s so tedious making it, but blue crabs are hard to come by in big cities like San Diego or Las Vegas. You have to come early in order to get it. Where we’re at its 28 dollars a dozen. If you order from Maryland or New Orleans it’s 55 dollars for a dozen plus shipping. In the Philippines you usually have to order it because of the high demand.its worth trying especially for people who don’t know how to Crack a crab.
