This dish became a favourite of our family after we ate it at my 3rd sister’s. It uses a pre-mix chilli crab paste from Prima and instead of using crabs, we replace it with mussels. It works! Very spicy and flavourful …. Yumss!!! Besides, using either crabs or mussels, you can also use clams if you want.
