Drunken Crab at Jesse, Shanghai
RAW CRAB. It sounds a little frightening even for someone like me who consumes a large amount of raw fish, uni and shrimp. But there are these horror stories of crab handlers who have died from a flesh eating disease, so the idea of raw crab scares me a little.
Here at Jesse, the drunken crab, is a Shanghainese favourite. The spotted sea crab is marinated in a shao xing wine marinade, (alcohol kills germs right?), served cold is insanely delicious, and it doesn't look that scary.
