Join Melissa Miranda as she makes Ginataang Alimasag, crabs in coconut milk. Melissa uses dungeness crabs for this dish, which may not be easy to find depending on where you live, so whatever crab you can get your hands on will work.

This is restaurant style. The traditional Filipino way is you put the squash, beans and crabs and let it all simmer in a pot and I'm tellin ya it's the perfect sauce to a bowl of steamed white rice. Nothing beats that creamy white coconut sauce infused with all the flavors of crab fat, fermented shrimp paste, garlic, onions, chilis and ginger. So good!

I love ginataang alimango! It’s the crab fat that makes the dish special. Dungeness crab is delicious but it’s not like the giant mud crabs in the Philippines. I’m happy to see Filipino cooking in BA.

BIG mistake. You do NOT put the crab in live in hot water. It makes the meat taste bitter. It is important to paralyse it in cold water or to freeze for a few hours before cooking.

No it doesn't idiot. Stabbing the knife through a crab's shell seconds before you pop in the pot is about as equally humane. It doesn't matter.

I'm not squeamish about boiling crabs live, but the way it was done here can be a shameful waste! Always remove the carapace and guts! Always remove the bands! Leaving the rubber bands on the claws can completely destroy the flavour! Makes it taste like water that's been sitting in a rubber garden hose on a sunny day. Putrid chemical taste! Also, there is a lot of meat in the body of the crab. Cooking it live, or dead with the carapace on and guts in place, can discolour and change the flavour of most of the best meat! Big mistakes.

It’s too bad the crab was cooked alive. Killing it first doesn’t change the flavor. Been eating lobsters in Maine my whole life and always kill them first.
hotshot619 3 mánuðum síðan
@givememore4free I am using my brain. If I fell into a swimming pool full of boiling water I'm positive I would not die instantly but I'd wish I was dead. I'm sure it would be a terrible way to go. I'd rather a sharp knife to my spinal column, which is how fisherman I know recommend killing them.
Dani Masterson
Dani Masterson 3 mánuðum síðan
@givememore4free Boiling anything alive would not cause instant shock. I am very familiar with lobsters and while there is a debate on what kind of pain they can feel, there is def no debate on whether or not they get shocked in boiling water, they don’t
givememore4free 3 mánuðum síðan
@hotshot619 don't you think the hot boiling water would shock it to the point that it dies instantly? Use your brain.

Hey BA, are you also going to make her only cook food "native" to her? Again, with the same predictable behaviour of type casting and pigeon holing chefs to their ethnicity as if they’re not more (capable) than that. I’m so disappointed Brad continues to be a part of the problem and doesn’t see what’s wrong with this continued narrative.

Charlie P
Charlie P 3 mánuðum síðan
@opalfruitcake That’s exactly the point and what I’m saying. BIPOC like Sohla, Priya, Rick, Gaby, and Christine were confined to doing only their “ethnic” dishes while non-BIPOC could do any dishes, meanwhile Sohla has vastly more experience as was demonstrated countless times on the show. They have BIPOC chefs in boxes they had to stay in. That’s why I have utmost respect for Carla and Molly for showing solidarity with their peers and recognizing this mistreatment.
opalfruitcake 3 mánuðum síðan
@Charlie P I get what you're saying and sort of agree. However this is only the case for the chefs who are of a brown hue. Molly Baz etc. we're able to cook anything they wanted to.
