Cooking Crabs In China

If you read my blog posts you will know that on Wednesday our driver showed up with a “SPECIAL DELIVERY” of crabs. 7 of them… Wang smiled and said “Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

We figured out the way to look after these crabs was to steam them. Wang sent home an insert that I could put in my wok and steam them that way. 20 minutes on their backs is all it takes. Interesting! I was a little nervous to try them although I’ve eaten these kind of crabs raw here in China and cooked would have to be better, right? They turned out REALLY good, delicious…not a lot of meat but very delicious and MUCH better than eating them raw!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
