Crab in special sauce....


My oldest son just love seafood. I bought a bit more than a kg of crab on Monday but really did not know what to do with it. I went to my in law's place for coconut milk but its sold out. Thought of doing masak lemak chili api with pineapple. I went home, cleaned the crabs and chucked them in the fridge....At 5 pm, i started to slice a bit of young ginger, garlics and 2 big onions. Fried them in a heated oil about 3 tablespoon, and threw in the crabs. Added 1/4 cups oyster sauce, 2 tblspoon chili sauce, a few dashes of tabasco sauce, 2 tblspoon blended dry chili and 1/2 cup of water. I let it simmered for about 5 minutes and added in fresh grounded black pepper. Stir to incorporated the pepper and served hot with hot white rice.....we enjoyed these until the noses watered ha ha ha........so really do not know what to call this dish but it sure was yum yum.

zaitgha,
Seems easy enough to cook. I will try this dish when my gout is less severe. Sea food is taboo to a sickly person like me.
I guess the same recipe could be used for lobsters or large prawns too.
Thanks for sharing.
