Wash the crab or crabs.

Lift the flap under the crab’s body with your thumb

While holding the body firmly with one hand, pull off the hardtop part of the shell with the other.

Remove the dark stomach portion. Remove the gills and the feathery grey tissue. Discard.

Use a heavy chopper to cut the crab down the middle, then cut each half into 2 or 3 sections depending on the size of the crab.

Crack the claws so the flesh is easier to get at and so the spices infuse the crab meat.

    I purchased a couple of the Chilli Crab spice packets on a recent holiday in Airlie Beach at the markets. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so happy there is a website to order more, or I would have had to get the magical blend scientifically tested to find out the ingredients. The flavours are too good to forget and was enjoyed by my whole family 🙂

    Thank you Spice Blendz for providing a fantastic product. I cooked the Nine Jewel Vegetable Korma – Mild and it was delicious. It was a definate flavour sensation!! I will be going back to the markets in Townsville to purchase more and will tell my friends to do the same
