Almost time to leave... so this is the last dinner I eat in China. So sad... I will miss the food! Girlwings mother is very good at cooking and she has been spoiling all of us for the time we've been in Shanghai.
Every meal have had unique dishes. It took almost a week until I saw the same dish again and then only because I had said some day that I liked a certain dish or maybe ate one more than the others.
Because this is the last dinner that we have together for a long time in China, they wanted to make something extra special. So they went and bought a bunch of crabs. This was interesting so I took a lot of pictures of the process. I guess they eat a lot of this on the Swedish west coast, but for me this is new.
...while others were a bit confused and tried to grab you with their claws. Be careful they can make you bleed!
So for their own good we bind their claws to their body. Tight and firm... I could hear some of their shell crack under the pressure. But it is ok, the crabs didn't say anything to complain.
Now it is time for the steam sauna and all the crabs join together and wait for the next treatment to begin.
And out of the steam bath showing a new golden glow to the shell feeling soft and juicy in every muscle and internal organ.
See how beautiful he got! Even the hairy claws have a glow to them. The crabs tasted good too. :)
The rest of the dishes we ate were:
