My father's from the Azores and when he was in the kitchen, I ate well. One of the dishes I remember most fondly was his crab. I wasn't into cooking when I was younger, so I didn't pay enough attention to be able to recall a recipe. What I do remember is that he boiled it with red wine. I recall onions and parsley in the pot, and perhaps allspice and bay leaf in the mix.
I have no idea what such a dish could be called but I recently had crab (prepared in the Japanese way) and I got nostalgic.
Does anyone have an idea of the kind of recipe I'm looking for? Can anyone name a dish or point me in the right direction?
