    Default Do mudcrabs stink (when cooking)??

    Strange question probably! lol

    But, OH has decided he wants to catch some mudcrabs. I'm a little concerned as my reaction to the smell of seafood borders on allergic reaction - I get physically ill and have even had migraines from the smell of seafood cooking. I suggested OH bought a camping stove and cooked them outside, which didn't go down very well..lol.

    He's asking for a test run, as he thinks they don't smell much anyway. But the idea of my house making me sick for days is freaking me out a bit. So...does anyone know how 'seafoody' mudcrabs smell?

    He's just planning on throwing them in a pot. That's good news then! I can't even recall a smell from prawns, so if that's what they smell like maybe it won't be so bad

    Depends how you cook em...if you are just throwing them whole in a pot to boil, i HIGHLY recommend doing this outside....its their guts that stink the place out....my DH is a mad fisherman & loves his crabbing & has a big pot especially for cooking mudcrabs on the side burner on the BBQ....

    If you cook them whole inside it takes months to get the smell out of your curtains, couches and other fabrics
