    Crab is a favorite among seafood lovers. It is also world wide in different styles of preparations. Crabs are also available in different types and sizes. Crab meat is high in protein, omega-3, vitamins and minerals. It is good for people with diabetes as it lowers the blood glucose level. It increases the amount of good cholesterol in the body. It is low in saturated fat and also has anti-cancer properties.

    I first tasted crab after I get married but fell in love with its taste the very first time. Its meat is soft, delicate with a mild sweetness to it. In America, crab salad, crab dips are common in buffets. It tastes so good. Crab cake is also a famous preparation. Other than that, crab is usually boiled in some salted water and eaten as such. In Chinese and Singapore cuisine, crab soup and chili crab is very famous.

    When cooking crab Vietnamese style, we love to add the unique Vietnamese spices. The spices and the ingredients added varies with region.

    The only intimidating part about eating crab meat is to get the flesh out. Most restaurants serve crab along with a nut cracker. Using a fork, carefully remove the flesh out. Well, in Vietnam the crab legs are cracked open using your teeth and the flesh removed easily with your fingers. No fancy tools needed. Its needs a little patience and practice though. Kids may find it difficult at first and need adult help. But they will surely enjoy the taste of crab meat.

    I haven't eaten many dishes with crab but I have got one that is my favourite. Sushi with crab sticks! I ate it many times in the restaurants but once I tried to do it on my own. You can find many recipes in the Internet. It is really worthy!
