Huynh De Crab - the Royal dish
There are many types of fresh, delicious yet cheap seafood in Khanh Hoa such as shrimp, sea snail, mussel, lobster, oyster, etc. but Huynh De Crab is the most famous speciality
With a very special shape which resembles a small turtle, this rare type of crab is a must-have food during your stay in the coastal province.
If boiled crab provides the purest and most natural flavor, roast crab has a salty taste of the sea. This dish is prepared in a more complicated way. First, the crab is hacked into small pieces and mixed with fish sauce and salt. The mixture is then poured into a hot frying pan and mixed again with some secret spices that only the local inhabitants know. When it is done, the dish has a yummy taste. It might be saltier than the boiled one, but the distinctive flavor of Huynh De crab still remains. And of course, roast crab becomes better if you eat it with your own hands!
