Crabs in Tomato Sauce

As I am a seafood lover, crabs are sure the first in the list. The Crabs in Tomato Sauce is one of my childhood favorite dishes. My family always cooked this whenever they can get crabs for a good bargain. And this dish is one of my mom's signature dish. It's so yummy. A good recommendation is that  this crab is very good with white rice. So yummy!!
