Another favorite of mine, crabs cooked in coconut milk made thick and creamy by adding squash and a bit spicy from red or green chili peppers. One of the good things about coming home to Philippines…seafoods! They are easier to get and so much cheaper and most of all you get them fresh too! Especially in our province of Pampanga, where crabs are easily available all year round. Although my mama said that the best time to get really good fatty crabs is in the month of August, you can still get lucky if you know how to pick them. Enjoy with steaming hot rice.
