Crabs in garlic sauce


My mother's blood pressure shoot up recently so we're taking it easy on Christmas eve.  No cholesterol-laden foods on Noche Buena.  That's a promise.  Meanwhile, let me share these crabs in garlic sauce that  I made over the weekend.  My mom was not tempted but I felt a little guilty munching on these baby crabs while she's eating laswa (similar to dinengdeng).:p

Feast on your inspirations and have a healthy Noche Buena.  Merry Christmas to you and yours!

This food looks great!
I can tell you that in Norway people are using low-carb against high blood preasure (and other diseasies as allergies,diabetes etc) . No sugar and flor but much fat instead. But you have to know what you do, of course. Very nice and effective diet, but no kakes and ordinar bread at all! Un abrazo!

I am curious to know what the red is on top. Is it tomato sauce? So sorry about you mom and her blood pressure. I am one of those where it is so low I am about dead all the time. Your crabs look so good. I can tell you are a fine cook. genie
