Beyond Resort Karon in Phuket is showcasing one of the stars of the seafood world by launching a Blue Sea Crab couples dining experience, a gastronomic treat in which guests can experience the sweet, fleshy crustacean caught that day in the Andaman Sea. Available throughout the month of July, the Andaman Blue Sea Crab, renowned for its high protein, low fat and vitamin-rich content, has been used exclusively in a carefully crafted menu by Beyond’s culinary team with wine pairings suggested by the experienced staff.
Four dishes have been created to celebrate the Andaman Blue Sea Crab and are served in a serene setting @Beach Restaurant from where diners can enjoy sweeping views the ocean and the outstretched Karon Beach.
Dishes include crab and shrimp with mozzarella cheese served with mayonnaise and mango salad; spaghetti angel hair with crab and roe shrimp sauce; crab and shrimp tartar with black and green olives, capers, onion, parsley and lemon served with lime mayonnaise; and crab and shrimp thermidor with mushroom, cream and white wine served with mashed potato.
