I have a very special place for mud crabs….in my stomach, I just love them, and I reckon the reason I love them so much is that you generally always buy them alive so you know that they are fresh. Luckily for me I also have the added thrill of being able to catch them whenever I visit Darwin. I have a good mate up there Named Steve Travia AKA as the Fish Whisperer, and we head off to his property a few hours west of Darwin and what follows is a week of hunting, fishing, drinking and laughing (not to mention hard work) We put our pots out on the first day (usually very early depending on the tides) and at sunset when we are coming back from a 10 hour fishing session we check the traps and generally have quite a few to make a feed – this is done daily and mud crab is on the menu nightly along side of barramundi, coral trout, golden snapper, mojitos, beers…you get the picture. Anyway as mud crabs are like weeds up there we learn to create many delicious recipes up there to get rid of the darn things…..it’s a bloody tough life being an Aussie or a mud crab!
Freeze the crabs until they are killed
Remove the top head shell and discard
Remove the gills (or dead mans fingers as they are also known)
Clean out any excess muck (rinse very lightly and quickly)
Cut in half lengthways, then cut into 3 on each side using a cleaver
Crack the claws with the back of a knife or cleaver just so they open a bit to let the sauce in.
Heat oil in a wok
Add garlic, chilli, ginger and coriander root and cook until fragrant
Add the crabs and toss for 1 minute
Add tomato sauce, chilli sauce, water, hoi sin sauce, fish sauce, sugar and salt.
Stir to combine the ingredients, bring to the boil.
Cover and allow to simmer/steam for about 10 minutes
Add in the green onions, cherry tomatoes and herbs and serve with steamed jasmine rice, crab crackers, crab pickers, finger bowls and bibs

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
