Black Pepper Crab

Okay, here is the recipe for my Black Pepper crab. Hope you guys will give it a try. Enjoy!

Black Pepper Crab


1 1/2 Dungeness Crab (3 1/2 lbs)
5 Tbsp Coarsely Ground Black Peppercorns
5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
6 cloves Garlic, chopped
10 Thai Bird's Eye Chilies, chopped
2 Tbsp Oyster Sauce
2 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Kicap Manis
Peanut Oil for deep frying


Coat the crab pieces with some corn flour and deep fry them in hot oil. Then set aside.

Add 1 Tbsp of peanut oil together with the butter. Then add the garlic and chilies and stir briefly or until the garlic is light golden in color and fragrant.

Then add the coarsely ground black peppers, oyster sauce, kicap manis, dark and light soy sauce. Bring to a quick boil and toss in the crab pieces and stir until well combine. Serve immediately.

  3. I wish I could buy crab for a reasonable price in Montreal..! This sounds wonderful.

  4. @Chocolate Shavings: Thanks so much for commenting. Yes, we're definitely luckier (in Vancouver) to have a great variety of seafood and good prices on crabs too ;)

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
