This is a truly Caribbean recipe. A one pot meal, using what’s readily available: Seafood! It’s rather easy and fun to eat!
I usually use mangrove crab like this guy
but didn’t have any and it wasn’t really crab ‘season’ so i opted for Alaskan king crab which you will have easier access to anyhow. However they were cooked. I usually make this recipe with raw crab.
Although they were clean I still washed them with water and lemon.
Here is the recipe. It makes 2 servings only. It’s my recipe and I usually cook for one.
-4 crab quarters
-2 cups brown rice
-2 cups fresh spinach
-1 small onion, chopped
-1 celery stalk, chopped
-1 tbsp parsley, chopped
-1 tbsp chives, chopped
-1/3 white wine
-1 tbsp soy sauce
-2 tbsp curry powder
-1 tbsp oil or butter
-1/2 habinero pepper
-1 tbsp Caribbean green seasoning
-Salt & Pepper to taste
-1 1/2 to 2 cups water
First I seasoned the crab with the Caribbean Green Seasoning
Then added the onion, celery, parsley, chives and habinero
Heat oil or butter
Add crab and chopped veggies. (when using raw crab I sautee the crab first then add the veggies later). The veggies i had (except the onion) were bought fresh then frozen.Stir. The veggies will give off some liquid, time to add the white wine
Add spinach and cover
Once the spinach is cooked, time to add water, soy sauce and curry
Stir in rice and cover
cook rice as directed
and voila! Caribbean Crab and Rice. The fun part besides the taste is getting the crab out of the shells
