I love seafood. It may be shrimp, fish, squid, or crabs. To cook crab has so many ways, but this recipe I will be sharing is just an effortless & simple way to cook crab with sprite, where you can taste the authentic flavor of the crab.
But before that, let’s check the benefits of eating crabs.
Crab is an excellent source of protein.
It is one of the possible dietary sources of protein available. It contains almost as much protein per 100 grams as meats without anywhere near the same levels of heart disease. The protein in crab is of high quality and, because of a lack of connective tissue, very digestible for people of all ages.
Crab contains long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.
Rich in vitamins and minerals, crab meat is also low in fat and contains Omega-3 polyunsaturated acids. Omega-3 helps protect from heart disease and aids brain development.
Crab contains Selenium.
All shellfish are a good source of Selenium, but crab meat is particularly rich in it. Selenium plays a vital role in the human’s antioxidant defense system, preventing damage to cells & tissues. It also plays an essential role in the function of the immune system, thyroid hormone metabolism, and synthesis in reproduction.
Crab contains Riboflavin (Vitamin B12).
Vitamins are water soluble and therefore not stored in the body, so they must be obtained through our diet, such as crab meat. Riboflavin is vital in producing steroids and red blood cells, promoting average growth and maintaining the skin, eyes, and nervous system.
Crab contains Copper & Phosphorus.
Crab meat contains nearly 30 times the copper found in cod and 56 times that in salmon, chicken & beef. Copper is involved in the absorption, storage, and metabolism of iron. It is vital in forming red blood cells and keeps bones, blood vessels, nerves, and the immune system healthy. At the same time, phosphorous is a principal mineral of bones and teeth and is vital in skeletal health and development. It is involved in most metabolic actions in the body, including kidney functioning, cell growth, and contraction of the heart muscle. It is also involved in converting food to energy.
