Crab Porridge/Congee

Posted by mamabok | Awesome,Chinese,My Musing,Useful Links,Useful Tips | Saturday 16 May 2009 6:07 pm




Anyone had crab porridge before..?? if you haven’t you have to try it.  It’s awesome..!! i donch know how Mr Choo from the chinese restaurant cooked it.. but it didn’t have any fishy smell to it at all.  But there were bits of ginger in it too.   I have been eating crab so much lately, guess who is gonna need some acne treatments soon.

But how does one refuse food from home.. when you don’t get food from home at all here.  So if someone offers to cook it for you .. and free at that.. you never refuse right..??  So even if it is too heaty or “poisonous” .. as the chinese say crabs are..  you just eat it.. and die later kinda attitude right..?? muahahahha!!

A hole crab leg .. for a bowl of porridge.  Although messy .. and i normally won’t eat them at home.. Asia.. i didn’t feel that messy eating it here.. because beggars cannot be choosers lah.

Plus he gave me the rest of the crab that didn’t go into the porridge/congee.  How can not like Mr Choo right..??  So what i did..?? bought some skin care .. by Botanics for his wife lah.  Cannot lah .. always take right..?? must give back too.

    wow! that’s look sooo gooood! I never had this before.
    I would imagine Mr. Choo probably steam the crab first then chopped them up and put in the congee? because the congee looks so good without the crab’s juice and all that stuff.

    Yes MB. I had this before n even tried cooking myself (cook any o how also it turned out GREAT!) hahaha. My version of crab porridge is not so whitish, mine was slightly pale orangey colour, due to rich roe…yummy! I put the whole crab (thoroughly wash/clean) to boil with sliced ginger till it’s cooked. I used the crab water to cook porridge. De-shell cooked crab n dump inside porridge when it’s done. Add a little salt n that’s it. That’s my version. I’m not a great chef hence if i can come out with this huh, consider good already u know…hehehe

    I put my comment in the wrong post earlier, now it’s right.

    Hi Lina,

    Just wanted to say welcome back! Glad you’re feeling better.

    Side note: I think ginger with anything is good. It’s a real good ingredient for flavor/marinate.

    Wow, I wish there’s good chinese restaurants in calgary..most of the restaurants here aren’t authentic and good tasting chinese food =[

    I had crab congee here once at one of my favorite chinese restaurants, but there were a lot of crashed shells in there, so we had to bee really careful when we were eating it =[

    I get lazy when I eat crabs =[ all the shells =P
