crabs in garlic and peanut butter sauce

it's been quite awhile that i've made a post...i admit i have been lazy and restless these days...and i misplaced my card reader( good excuse, huh?!)...but finally found it last night..so anyway, this dish was made earlier this week. i bought these crabs for just 150.00 with almost 2 kls in all..not bad, right?

i was told that these kind of crabs are female (male crabs are bluish in color)...and it is usually these female crabs have a higher chance of having much fat...(i love crab fat!)...

the usual way of cooking crab in our household is just to put these crabs in a pot with salt and soda...then let it cook in medium fire....so simple. however, i wanted to try something different...so after washing the crabs...i asked my brother to cut in half...

then i heat the pan with olive oil and 4 tbsp of butter. sauteed the minced onions and lots (2 heads) of minced garlic before adding the crabs...toss the whole thing...season with enough salt and pepper...finally add the peanut butter (5 tbsp was good for me)...after 5 minutes..add 1 cup of soda (i used 7-up). simmer until done...


i just loved the peanut butter taste with garlic..delish!!!
