Great Korean Recipes – Korean Crab Stew

Korean crab stew is similar to a Western style bouillabaisse which originated in the port city of Marseille, France. Korean crab stew, like bouillabaisse, is made with a reduced fish stock but only contains crab not several different types of cooked fish and shellfish with a wide variety of herbs and spices. There are fewer spices and vegetables in the crab stew yet boiled together produces a rich distinct flavor.
