Craving for crabs these few day and cooked my favourite crab dish, the sweet and sour crabs. We bough a packet of frozen crabs from the Asian supermarket here. Cost around 9€, quite expensive but these are very huge pieces. The crabs were ready cleaned and cut into pieces so it is really convenient. My dear cooked this, he learned this from his mother, I followed the steps and there are instead very simple.
For the sweet and sour crabs, you need:
- crabs of course, smash the shell of the clamps slightly so that they are easier to eat later
- dried chilies
- chili sauce
- sugar, salt and pepper
- 1 egg
Fried the garlic with chilies until fragrant and add in the crabs. Stir fry 1 minute and pour in ketchup and chili sauce. How much to add depends on how much sauce you want. Add water and stimmered until the crabs are cooked. Would not take too long, around 5-8 minutes would do. Add in seasoning at the end and pour one beaten egg to the sauce. The sauce is really good with white bread or Man Tou.
