My husband loves seafood very much and so do my children and lucky for us since seafood here is quite cheap. So seafood like fish, prawns and squid is a must in our daily menu. And some other time we'd like to have crab eventhough it's kinda messy when eating crabs. Usually there would be a lot of thumping and cracking at the dinner table. But despite of all the "adventures" and "obstacles" before we could taste the crab meat,we still love crabs. And here is a crab recipe that you can try.....My Sweet Sour Crab.
5 shallots/ onions - chopped
2 garlic - chopped
a inch of ginger - finely slice
1 tsp turmeric
4 tbls tomato ketchup (sos tomato)
2 tbls chilly sauce
curshed dried shrimp (optional)
2 tbls sugar
salt to taste
1 egg - beaten
2 fresh tomatos
a cup of water
-mix together the crab,shallots, garlic, ginger ,turmeric and water in a bowl.
- put in a wok or cooking pot and cook with low heat until the crab is cooked through with the lid on for about 15 minutes
- add in the ketcup,chilly sauce ,dried shrimp,salt and sugar.
- and finally add in the beaten egg and fresh tomatos, mix everything together. Once you see the egg is cooked that means the crab is ready!
