Fresh Crabs

Blended tomatoes, peppers and onions

Vegetable oil

Tomato puree

All purpose seasoning

Salt to taste


Half fill a very large pot or fish kettle with fresh water, and add plenty of salt and bring to a vigorous boil

Drop the crab in and bring back to the boil

Give the crab about 20 to 35 minutes to cook depending on size

Once done pour the content into the sink and wash off the crab with fresh water to remove any surplus protein

Allow to cool then prepare crab by prying the crab face off to reveal the inner contents

Remove the unwanted parts and arrange neatly on a tray ready to be stewed

Add oil into a wide pot. When it gets hot, pour the blended ingredients (Tomatoes, pepper and onions).

Allow the mixture fry for some minutes . Then add the rest of the ingredients (curry, thyme, seasoning, salt etc.)

Leave to cook for about 5 minutes and add a little water if too thick

Add the already prepared crabs arranging neatly in the pot

Cover pot and let cook for a further 10 minutes to get the sauce well embedded in the crabs

Let cool down and serve with boiled white rice!

Fresh crab can be purchased at seafood markets like Epe Fish Market or Isale Eko market or on supermarkets online.
