Crabs in Fish Sauce

This, pretty gruesome, jar is the result of a day spent beach combing. Those are tiny crabs we use in papaya salads, we crush them into the salad and they form a seafood sauce that flavours the salad. In cases like this, when I've collected too many to use immediately, I preserve them like this in fish sauce. The saltiness of the sauce will keep them for months.
