Produced in the seaside region around Hele Town in Wanning County, Hele crab has rich, meaty flesh rarely found in other species. It is particularly special for its golden yellow fat, which is the same color as the yolk of a salted duck egg with a fragrant aroma and rich nutritional content. There are many methods for cooking Hele crab, perhaps the most common is to first steam the crab in broth then serve with a dipping sauce made of ginger, garlic and vinegar seasoned with condiments, highlighting the delicious original flavors.
