Pasta in Aligue Sauce

panlasangpinoy's picture
Aligue is another term for crab fat. The aligue in this recipe comes from Asian shore crabs. In the Philippines, we call these crabs “talangka” while the fat that comes from these crabs is known as “taba ng talangka”. Taba ng Talangka makes a good appetizer. All you need is to squeeze a slice of lemon or calamansi and you’re all set. Don’t eat too much though because it can increase your cholesterol.
