Aamion Goodwin fills us in on the dangerous delicacy
My Father took me to Fiji when I was one and made that a part time home for all of my life. Every year we try to go down there and connect with our Fijian family. Mark Healey has fallen in love with the place as well and the village has adopted him as their albino son.
This year we caught a ton of fish and some coconut crabs as well to sell so the village had some extra money. Coconut crabs taste like the best thing you ever tasted.... the best crab meat ever, with a hint of coconut.
It is a true delicacy, and when you're on a deserted island they are like finding gold. The only thing about these crabs is they can cut your finger off if they get a chance to and in order to capture these bad boys you gotta wedge them out of thick roots or smoke them out of their holes.
Because I've been doing it my whole life, it's no big thing.... but don't try this at home. Here's some shots from this last trip. Stay tuned for more pics from my Fiji home. -- Aamion Goodwin
