Crabbing and Craving


Friends were asking us to join them this coming Friday early morning to go crabbing in Um Al Quwain. They had been there last week and the treasures of the sea are bountiful, they had a full basket of fresh live crabs. When F told me this, I actually jump into conclusion that we are going with them for the crab hunting this weekend. F told me that mama can’t come (I am not allowed to stay up late for some reason) and I felt too upset, how come that I can’t come where all I can think of is to eat crabs and prepare them into different dishes. I am not sure if crabs are good for me this time of the year. Crabs have high mercury content that’s why I have to eat it in moderation.

Um Al Quwain is the best place for crab hunting. Most of the tour companies offer crab hunting for tourist in Dubai.

You can cook your crabs in many different ways. I always wanted my crabs steamed with little salt and served with vinaigrette. F loves it with squash and string beans in coconut milk with a little bit of spiciness. There are so many ways to cook crabs depending on your taste.

I wish we could go, one of F friends told him later on that he won’t be able to come as both of his kids are sick. I really wanted to go on this trip, it is more than an hour drive from Dubai but I think the experience is worth it.
