3 lbs blue crabs (Alimasag)
2 tbsp shrimp paste
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 medium-sized onion, minced
1 knob ginger, cut into thin strips
3 tbsp cooking oil
4 cups coconut milk
½ tsp ground black pepper
1 bunch fresh spinach
6 pieces Thai chili
In a large pot, sauté the garlic, onion, and ginger
Add the ground black pepper and coconut milk then bring to a boil
Put-in the shrimp paste and fish sauce and cook until the coconut milk’s texture is thick and natural oil comes out of it (approximately 20 ++ minutes)
Add the Thai chili and simmer for 5 minutes
Put the crabs in the pot and mix until evenly covered with coconut milk. Simmer for 5 to 20 minutes. (Note: If crabs were steamed prior to cooking, 5 to 8 minutes is enough)
Add the spinach and simmer for 5 minutes
Serve hot. Share and Enjoy!
More about me:
My name is Vanjo Merano. I live in the Northern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I work as an IT professional, but cooking has been my passion since I was a kid.
I created Panlasang Pinoy (the blog and this youtube channel) to promote Filipino food and Filipino Cuisine to the world.
Who shoots your video and who creates the recipes?
I shoot all the videos myself and I write and develop my own recipes.
What equipment do you use?
I started the videos back in 2009 using a Pentax point and shoot camera. It is a priced possession because it helped me take this channel to where it is today.
At present, I use Panasonic Hc-X920, Sony FDR-AX100 4K Ultra HD Camcorder, and Nikon D5.
