crab soldiers served by Rouba shahin


  • 10 slices of sourdough or baguette bread (2½ -3 cm thick) crust removed
  • 200 grams of white crabmeat
  • olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoon horseradish
  • ¼ cup Kewpie mayonnaise
  • 1½ tablespoon hot chilli sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • cracked pepper
  • spring onion to garnish

Notes from Rouba

  • If the bread is doughy, be generous when drizzling the olive oil.
  • If the only crab meat available is preserved in vinegar, simply wash it under cold running water and drain.
  • Use good quality mayonnaise – for this recipe, I’m suggesting kewpie.


Step 1.

Drizzle the bread with olive oil. Toast or griddle the sourdough on both sides. Once golden, grate parmesan cheese on one side of the bread.

Step 2.

Mix the crabmeat, horseradish, mayonnaise, chilli sauce, and lemon juice. Spoon the mixture onto the toasted bread, then top each with spring onion. Season with cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

Serve while the sourdough is still crisp.

This post is meant to be a recipe, but I can’t ignore what’s been happening 👉🏽👉🏽The last seven months have been incredibly challenging, watching thousands of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered in the name of self-defence 💔 It’s an excuse to ethnically cleanse the indigenous people of the land. But what I’ve seen in the last 24 hours has absolutely shattered me 😞

Families were told to move for their safety, only to be burnt alive. I forced myself to watch videos of beheaded babies—images that will never leave my mind. The destruction, the horrific scenes, and the screams are etched in our hearts and minds💔

And yet, our government responds with a mere, “It’s concerning.” Our tax money has contributed to the slaughter of these innocent people; our tax money has contributed to funding this genocide. 

I feel heartbroken and helpless. How can the world just watch? How can anyone say, “I’m staying out of this”?

I’m not ok. Are you?
With so many new followers here, today feels like the right time to reintroduce myself, as it also marks the 76th anniversary of the Nakba—a day of remembrance for the Palestinian people, including my family🇵🇸🌟 

I’m Rouba, 40+7 years young, and I’ve been happily married for 28 years🙏🏽 Those who follow my stories know my husband is quite the character, always keeping things lively 😅 We have two wonderful sons, and my mother-in-law is truly amazing—she often features in my stories ❤️

I’m a big foodie, with a special love for hummus fatteh, ofcourse the  Lebanese 🇱🇧 version 😉 it’s my absolute favourite! I believe Middle Eastern food is the yummiest in the world. 🙌🏼 And yes, I’m proudly pro-Palestine, married to a Palestinian. 

Seventy-five years ago, my husband’s grandfather and his family were evicted from their home. This history is a significant part of our lives 💔

Thanks for joining me here, where we celebrate rich flavours, vibrant stories, and the resilience of a remarkable culture.

Welcome to my journey! FREE PALESTINE 🇵🇸
