Crabby Event in Vashi
19 April 2017

Seafood is a versatile class of food in itself. It’s easy to prepare, easy to eat and also very good for one’s health. It can be used in salads, fried, in a curry, baked, steamed and even eaten raw. It can be quite an acquired taste, but owing to its large variety, there’s something in it for everyone, except vegetarians. There is a burgeoning class of seafood restaurants in Vashi. Each boasts to be the best and serve the freshest. But there is one restaurant that is secretly creating waves.

One such multi-cuisine restaurant in Vashi is “Something’s Fishy” which is creating a storm for its delicious food, but it’s best known for its seafood. Malvani style King Crab or Cantonese style steamed fish, a lip-smacking Pomfret fry or a delectable tandoori lobster, Something’s Fishy has it for you. It brings in a fresh catch every day and the quality goes hand in hand with the quantity it provides.

Crabs to be specific have great health benefits.

Good for diabetics

Along with all other shellfish, crabs are rich in chromium, which helps insulin to metabolize sugar, and thereby lowers the blood glucose levels in the body.

Anti-cancer properties

All shellfish, including crab, have generous amounts of selenium. Selenium is an anti-oxidant and cancels out the carcinogenic effects of cadmium, mercury, and arsenic, which can cause tumors in humans. It has been proved that higher levels of selenium in the blood lead to lower rates of cancer. In fact, lysate, which is extracted from the blue blood of the horseshoe crab, is used for detection of spinal meningitis and for fighting cancer.

Source of good cholesterol

While crab meat is considered low in saturated fat, the presence of chromium helps increase the level of HDL (good cholesterol) in your body, and thus reduces the risk of strokes, coronary and circulatory heart disease. In fact, crabs contain sterol, which restricts the absorption of other cholesterol eaten during a meal, thus canceling out the harmful effects of other fats added to your meal.

Omega 3 fatty acids

Crabs, like all shellfish, are also a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids. The crabs get these from consuming phytoplanktons and algae, which is a big part of their diet. Omega 3 fatty acids are immensely useful to people and help in reducing the stickiness of blood platelets, thus making red blood cells more flexible and ensuring a smoother flow. Omega 3 acids also help to reduce the level of triglycerides and LDL (low-density lipoproteins), which choke up artery walls as deposits.
