Gab-goo-ba maa-fourd ~ Boiled Crabs
This is a very seasonal modern dish using local crabs which are
very tender. While crabs in city fish markets tend to be on the
small side, those found on the east coast from the Gulf of Oman
area, are much larger and sometimes tastier.
2-3 lbs (1-1.5kgs) crab
Fill a large saucepan with water, add all spices and bring to the boil. Meanwhile, wash but do not shell the crabs. Add to liquid and continue boiling for 12-15 minutes. When crabs turn red they are done. Remove, drain and serve at room temperature.
