Description: A Basque name for a spider crab. This is a crab with little meat but what it has is well-flavoured. It has a large, oval spiked body and long, thin spidery legs, hence its name. In the Basque country this may well be stuffed with a mixture of the crab meat, onions, leeks, garlic, tomato purée and parsley.
