Salmorejo De Jueyes Crab Stew


12 ounces crab meat: fresh, canned (drained) or frozen (thawed)
1 teaspoon ground garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped onion
2 or 3 olives, chopped
1/2 tablespoon chopped red peppers
1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil
1/2 cup water or (white wine!)
teaspoon salt


Sautee all ingredients except the crab over medium heat for about two minutes, stirring continuously. Add the crab meat, stir, and cook, covered, for 15 minutes over low heat. Stir and let stand for a few minutes, covered.
Serve garnished with slices of red pepper and sweet peas. You may want to have lemon or orange slices handy, for some people who like to add a squeeze of either to their dish.


These are one of the many dishes you will find being sold at the many beach side kiosks of Puerto Rico often served right with arepas or Tostones (fried plantains) or maybe you want make some empanadillas (Turnovers)
