Alimango (Mud Crab)

by Marketman

Alimango (Mud Crab) Scylla serrata are originally mangrove dwellers but now widely farmed in ponds with brackish water. They are plentiful in the remaining mangrove areas around the country and range in size from tiny babies to the giants at about 1 kilo a piece. alimango1 They have medium to firm textured meat with a delicate sweet flavor that I find absolutely delicious. They have much thicker shells than the blue or orange shelled crabs that seem to have more delicate meat. They can be prepared steamed with lots of old bay seasoning, or steamed plain and served with lemon butter, stir-fried with garlic and oil, cooked with chili and tomatoes, fried into crab cakes, etc.

In my formative years, my family had a healthy supply of superb alimango, the by-product of a Lucena fishpond/prawn farm experiment gone haywire. All of the pricey black tiger prawns raised in the ponds were being munched on by alimango adolescents that had snuck in from the nearby river… As the intruders grew up on this smorgasborg of black prawns, they in turn became the prized catch of the pond when harvest time rolled around. All of these fat alimango were packed up nicely and made the trip to our kitchen in Manila.

I never cooked crab until my mid-thirties. It just seemed so bothersome to clean and prep them. So I satisfied my cravings with restaurant Maryland-style crab cakes and restaurant chilli crab dishes. That is, until a few years ago, when I discovered just how easy and delicious homemade chilli crab can be. It has since become a signature dish in our household.

I only buy large 600-1,000 gram live crabs that are still spunky. If they don’t try to lunge at me when i make poking movements at their beady eyes I take that as a sign that they are near death and thus less fresh than they could be. Recent prices in the markets range from P250-350 per kilo, with females pricier than males due to the added bonus of fat crab roe (the orange coral that is pure cholesterol, I think). “Gay” crabs are priced somewhat in the middle of the range – but no one has really been able to explain what these are… if I recall correctly, a recent newspaper article surmised that they were males with eggs…let’s not go there, shall we? Aesthetically, crabs seem more balanced when they have both claws but it really doesn’t matter. In fact, you can get a much better price on one-clawed specimens as they have probably failed to get themselves exported to Hong Kong or Tokyo. I have been able to get good crabs from the FTI weekend market in Taguig, Seaside Mart in Baclaran and in Batangas markets. I recently saw two crab vendors at the Market!Market! mall and they were asking P450 a kilo for crabs when they could be had elsewhere for just P350 or less… what a rip-off! And you have to pay for parking too.

To clean the crabs, ask your brilliant cook if s/he knows how, and if yes, you are truly in luck! Otherwise, it is a royal pain in the neck. You brush the outside of the crabs until clean. alimango pieces You find a soft spot on it’s belly and plunge a knife through it to kill it while it writhes with pain. You open it up and remove the hairy lungs/gills and entrails, dismember the body, etc. In our household, there are at least three people who can clean crabs and prep them for cooking. I simply refuse. Some things I can but don’t have to do… Once clean, you can cut the main body into four pieces + the two claws. Please see third photo of clean dismembered crab. This is now ready for cooking. Be careful when handling live crab. Always keep their claws tied. A crab bite is not funny. The biggest crabs could probably sever a fingertip if truly annoyed.

Please check the recipe section in a week or so for chilli crab a la marketman and/or a crab cake recipe.

    I would just like to know possible markets for alimango and how much is the price.



    Aug 3, 2005 | 7:18 pm

  5. Marketman says:

    Most wet markets in Metro Manila have alimango vendors. The biggest selection seems to be at Seaside in Baclaran. You can get all sizes and prices range from PHP300 to PHP450 a kilo in normal times (holidays and xmas are more). You can also get them in FTI, guadalupe, Market!Market!, etc. On the roadside to Baguio you can buy big ones for PHP250+ per kilo. Sometimes people bring me alimango from Palawan that arrive still very alive and huge ones that I am told cost only PHP120-150 a kilo at the source… I guess the answer is lots of places…

  18. derek whitton says:

    sir i have been reading the comments in your posts, i am a commercial shellfisherman in the uk for over 30 years, i am retiring to live in the phillipines,i would like to know this, is it possible for a european to setup a shellfish bussiness in the phillipines, if so then i would have holding tanks built and ship live in decent quantities ,in refridgerated transport ,thankyou derek

    Aug 2, 2007 | 1:24 pm

  19. Marketman says:

    derek, what an absolutely fascinating question. I for one, would love it if you could set up a business and import clean shellfish rather than my taking chances with shellfish from tainted local waters/sources. I suspect your biggest hurdle shall be customs/quarantine questions around the live seafood that would be imported. Its best if on a visit to the Philippines, you check out the legal requirements to do this business, and if you manage to figure it all out, let me know, I shall probably be one of your earliest customers! Good luck!

    how big can mud crabs grow to in philipines in australia it not uncommon the catch muddys bout 2 kilo

    Feb 8, 2009 | 10:56 am

  93. Marketman says:

    william, 2 kilos is unusual in the Philippines, probably more because they are harvesting the mud crabs too young. I have had a few 1.5 kilo ones on occasion, but that is unusual…
