Caril

I don’t really enjoy food eating food that requires me to take a shower afterwards. It’s why I’m not particularly fond of ribs, because I have no real co-ordination, so I inevitably end up plastering my face with barbecue sauce. I hate that. And I generally hate being dirty and covered in remnant of dinner – but despite that, despite hating eating foods that require a bib, I just can’t say no to a good crab.

Whether it’s done, as the Chinese like it – steamed with some ginger, garlic and spring-onion, A Thai Crab curry, or as a Mozambican-styled Caril de Caranguejo, there’s just something about a well-cooked crab that I can’t refuse. No matter how messy it may make me, and how much of a fight it is to get to the actual meat, it’s hard to turn a good crab down.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
