Well, thanks to my fellow foodbuzz friend, chezannies, I'm starting to have a craving for crabs! So, after my coffee meet with my two dear friends from Richmond, I head on to Granville Market. I went to the Lobsterman, where they have plenty of live seafood, swimming in the tanks. I bought 3 large Dungeness crabs and I got them to clean them up and cut into the sizes I wanted. This is a sweet and sour chili crabs and I shall post the Black pepper crab recipe tomorrow.
Sweet And Sour Chili Crabs
1 1/2 Dungeness Crabs (3 1/2 lbs)
4 cloves Garlic, chopped
1/2 inch Ginger, chopped
1 medium Yellow Onion, diced
10 Thai Birds-eye Chillies, finely chopped
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
Peanut oil for deep-frying
2 Tbsp Rice Wine Vinegar
8 Tbsp Ketchup
3 Tbsp "Maggi" Chili Sauce
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Corn flour
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 1/2 cup Water
Coat the crab pieces with some corn flour and deep fry in hot oil. Then set aside.
In a hot wok, add 2 tbsp of peanut oil and add the ginger, garlic, yellow onion and chilies. Cook the mixture until fragrant.
Then mix in the prepared sauce and bring it to a boil.
Add the crabs and stir briefly. Then add the beaten eggs and stir until all the eggs are cook and well combined. Serve immediately!
