Somali Crab Meat Stew

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Marlitt

This is a nice quick stew with my favorite seafood ( crabmeat). Good flavors and very healthy too. I usually just use parsley instead of the cilantro here,but the orignial recipe calls for cilantro. This is from The Lands of Figs and Olives by Habeeb Salloum and James Peters.

This is quick and easy, and it is flavorful. My husband, however, thought the crabmeat could be put to better use. We did enjoy it, though. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Dinner and a Movie challenge Part 2 for Witchin Kitchen.
