Eating crab is always a messy affair and hence we hesitate to help ourselves with the same while eating out. That’s not the case at home. One can get as messy as one likes. January- February is the ideal time to buy crabs as they have more flesh in it as compared to rest of the year. I got some 3 spotted crab the other day and decided to prepare Spicy Crab Roast, as D loves anything spicy. Ideally this dish needs to be prepared a couple of hours in advance, so that the meat absorbs the flavour well. The crab tastes even better the next day 🙂
