Not the best photo shots i know, but i want to post them anyways.  Some Rock crabs cooked in coco milk with jalapeńos, pumpkin, ginger and green leafy veggies. The crabs were fat! The top shells were almost filled with crab fat. The spicy chili, thick coco milk, and the goodness inside the crab makes this recipe rich and flavorful.

A lot of misconceptions about these crustaceans, so here are some nutritional facts about crabs:  It does contain some fat, but it is generally unsaturated fat which is considered heart healthy. Crab is also a natural source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to improve memory, decrease the chances of having a heart attack, decrease risk of cancer, and possibly help to improve depression and anxiety. Crab is also a good source of vitamins A, C and the B vitamins including B12, and minerals like zinc and copper. It is a source of selenium, which may be a means of preventing cancer. Crab also has some chromium, which is considered a useful mineral if you have insulin resistance, as it may improve blood sugar metabolism. Crab is an excellent addition to most diets, being low in fat and calories, but high in protein and nutrients.(source link)
