My first ever CATCH AND COOK episode! Very exciting stuff, because not only did the Thai Inspired Battered Barramundi taste amazing, but I…
Catch and Cook NT Blue Swimmer Crab
I hope you enjoy this Catch n Cook Blue Swimmer Crab, Northern Territory Style episode.
Fishing location: Darwin Harbour, launched from Dinah Beach boat ramp right near Darwin city, Northern Territory (NT).
Fishing plan: Throw in the 2 small crab pots, then go fishing for Barramundi or other desirable fish to catch and cook. (Preferably no sharks)
Cooking plan: Use my roaster/smoker back at home to cook smoked crab.
I have been wanting to do a catch and cook episode for a while now, but have actually been strugling to catch something worth cooking.
While fishing I threw in 2 small crab pots. After a couple of hours I came back and checked the pots and was lucky enough to have caught a couple of Blue Swimmer Crabs.
As you will see in the fishing video, I cooked the Blue Swimmer Crabs on a roaster/smoker. So the end result you probably wouldn’t call “smoked crab” but more of a cooked crab with a sublte smoky flavour.
My arch nemisis make a few apearances … of course I am talking about sharks.
With my fishing, I went back to basics. Fishing with live bait is something I havent done in quite a while, so I thought I should give it a go. And this resulted in me catching nothing but sharks on my fishing lines.
It would be a great success if I was “shark fishing”, but sadly I was targeting Barramundi or many other desirable fish.
If you enjoy this Catch and Cook Blue Swimmer Crab video, then let me know. I quite enjoyed cooking crabs and it’s something I would like to do more often if you guys enjoy it.
Thanks for watching!
