Aligue, otherwise known as crab fat, is delicious. While many turn away from the stuff, aligue, when prepared well, is a fantastic ingredient. It can be added and stirred easily into dishes, such as fried rice and stews. It can even be the main ingredient of a pasta sauce! 

What so great about aligue now is that unlike before, it's already bottled and ready to serve. If you really wanted to, you can open a bottle, stir it into your dish, and you're done! 

If you're wondering what one can possibly do with aligue other than use it as the sauce for crab, here are a few dishes that should change your mind about aligue
