I absolutely love eating crab, especially mud crabs as they have the best texture and flavour in my opinion. They are definitely a luxury as they are quite expensive. So right now when they are in season and cheapest at about $25 per kilo is the best time to eat them. Cooking them like the Chinese restaurants with ginger, spring onion, shallots, chilli, garlic, soy sauce and oyster sauce is one way to serve them. I also like them steamed and then served with just lemon and pepper to taste the sweetness of the crab meat.
