Thai Siam: Mud Crab: salt and pepper; ginger and shallot

After seeing a photo of a mud crab on Thai Siam's Facebook page I asked the owner, Anna, if she would let me know when they got more in. I love mud crab and it had been far too long since the last time I had eaten it.

I received a phone call from Anna letting me know that they had mud crab in stock. I made a booking for Saturday night and waited with great anticipation for my mud crab meal.

When Lam came out with the crabs I almost swooned. Look at those huge crabs full of succulent crab meat!

While we waited we ordered some steamed dim sims

After a short while our crabs arrive.  They smelled amazing!

The crab meat was as sweet and flavoursome as I had hoped. I had the mud crab cooked fried in salt and pepper; hubby's crab was cooked with ginger and shallots. I tasted a bit of each and I preferred the salt and pepper. I enjoyed every last morsel and had so much fun prying out the flesh.  Hubby loved his crab and said that it was the most delicious since the one he had eaten in Penang. That's high praise from him. 

A delicious meal that we will long savour.
