Photo 52, 2020 Challenge, Week Number 48: My Favorite Food, Boiled Chili King Crabs - A Challenging Job Before you Can Eat With Gusto

in Photography Lovers3 months ago

Hello! A blessed day to everyone! Here is my entry for Hive Blockchain Photo 52, 2020 Weekly Photography and CreativeCoin Contest initiated by @photo52 for this week's theme: FOOD

Other people say that it's so messy eating crabs but for me, I enjoy and love crackling its pincers, picking the crab meat and roe. It's a challenging job before I can eat with gusto and satisfy my hunger ..whew! Am salivating again.


Boiled Chili King Crabs is one of the favorites among Dabawenyos. Crab Fat/ Crab Roe is really a BONUS if you choose to buy female crabs. Be sure that it is not full moon when you buy it because you will not find crab fats/crab roe inside it. Folks say that during the full moon, crabs shed their outer skin (periodic shedding of the cuticle in arthropods or the outer skin in reptiles during the full moon).

TIP: cooking seafood must be done right. Not half-cooked as it caused poisoning.

Ho my ka yummy ana Sis, hays di na puede sa tuhod ko, puede siguro tikim lang.

Pde naman tikim nga lang. at saka once in a while Sis.

Ang sarap... Last 2 weeks we ate outside with my family sa isang seafood restaurant dito. Grabe ang dami ko nakain! Naka 4 cup of rice ako!!! Hahaha... Take away pa ang sobrang seafood... 😜

Hala! ang taas na ng sugar content nyan Sir Ken!

Kailangan ng EXERCISE!!! hahaha...

Oh yeah, I'm definitely in the camp of "love crab meat, but hate having to crack them open," too. 😂 It's a great way to spend a meal with friends though!
