Ginataang Langka na may Alimasag

Langka na may bangot na Kasag
Ginataang Langka na May Alimasag, Langka na May Bangot na Kasag is a Bicolano fare. Young jackfruit slices cooked in coconut milk with blue crabs. Jackfruit cooked with coconut milk goes very well with the crabs, personally I prefer this ginataang alimasag version compared to the Tagalog version which uses string beans and pumpkin for vegetables.

Langka na may bangot na kasag

Cooking is almost similar to my ginataang crab or guinataang shrimp with vegetables dishes. I usually steam cook my crabs before cooking them with coconut milk this way I won't overcook the vegetables.

Ingredients:

2 cups langka, unripe jackfruit, sliced
1 kilo alimasag, crab, about 4 pieces
2 thumb size ginger, cut into strips
1 large size onion, chopped
1/2 head garlic, crushed
2 cups pure coconut milk
1-2 pieces siling labuyo, bird’s eye chili, cut in half
2-4 pieces siling haba, green chili
cooking oil
salt

Cooking procedure:

Guinataang Langka na may Alimasag - Cooking procedure

Remove belly flap of each crab wash and drain. Steam crabs for 10-15 minutes, cut crabs in half set aside. In a large pot sauté garlic, ginger and onion until fragrant. Add half of the pure coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water bring it to a boil. Add in jack fruit and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half, stirring occasionally. Add in the remaining coconut milk, crabs, bird’s eye chili and green chili, season with salt to taste. Cover the pot and cook for another 5-10 minutes. Serve hot.

Hi Punky,
Alimasag or blue crabs are caught in the sea and have smaller and thinner claws and with spreckled shell, alimango or mud crabs are caught in murky waters near mangroves along the river mouths, they are usually farmed they are bigger and have thicker claws with plain shells.
