Developer Singularity 6 has released the much-anticipated patch update for Palia, which addresses plenty of new changes and adds new content. After reports of a few recipes missing from the 0.168 update, the Crab Gumbo recipe has finally arrived for players to get in-game.

As to how exactly they’ll be able to get or find this recipe, players will need to have a high Friendship level with a certain Grimalkin. Nevertheless, we’ve brought out the books again to help players learn how to get the Crab Gumbo recipe and cook the dish in Palia.

Crab Gumbo has properly been added to Palia in the latest game update, patch version 0.169, which arrived on 26th September 2023 for PC. This dish was one of the ten mentioned in the v0.168 patch notes; however, players noted that they could not acquire it despite a few hotfix updates released after that.

Nevertheless, this dish is now available for players to prepare and cook in their home kitchen, but they will need to obtain the recipe first. Luckily, they won’t need to spend any Coins or Cooking Skill Medals to get this recipe; however, there is a requirement they’ll need to meet to own this recipe.

Firstly, the recipe is located in Zeki’s Room inside his home, which is located north of the village library in Killima Village. As this recipe is found inside his room, players must reach Level 3 Friendship with Zeki to acquire his room door key, which they can access, and get the recipe on the desk along the left-side wall.

This recipe calls for various ingredients that can be foraged, grown, or purchased from Zeki or Badruu, which are as follows:

  • Any Crab Meat x1
  • Flour x1
  • Oil x2
  • Onion x1
  • Oyster x1
  • Spicy Peppers x1

To prepare this dish, players will need a Mixing Station, a Prep Station, and the Standard Stove or higher to cook Crab Gumbo successfully. We suggest preparing the chopped ingredients first: the Crab Meat, Onion, and Spicy Peppers which the latter is used to make Spicy Peppers Paste, but don’t forget to stir when the prompt is displayed.

Combine the Chopped Spicy Peppers with the oil to make the Spicy Peppers Paste before adding all the prepared ingredients to the pot on the stove. Finally, combine all the ingredients to make Zeki’s Mother’s famous Crab Gumbo dish, which gives players 375 Focus Points and can be sold for 63 Gold.
