Just like in Singapore.....

After my first experience with crabs last week, I told myself that I had to cook it again. So this time round, I bought another brand of crabs that I found at the Asian store and guess what? They were so H.U.G.E! The pincers were just like those of Sri Lankan crabs. I think these crabs were from Vietnam, but I´m not very sure.

And this time, I didn´t fry the spices for a long time. Only about 2-3 mins until they were cooked and I mixed them with the crabs really quickly.

































Don´t you think they look like those at seafood restaurants?







I teamed up the crabs with some simple deep-fried tofu with garlic chives (seasoned with soya sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil)


The final product served with warm jasmine rice.....Ooh, I couldn´t stop eating it!

The hubby still needs time to get used to ever-difficult-to-eat crabs AND we still need to get our nutcracker. Other than that, I think I´m pretty satisfied with my 2nd attempt at Black Pepper Crabs!

Recipe here.

Hey Priscilla,
How do you make the garlic chives. Do you stir fry it with the oyster sauce, etc. or do you blanch them, drain and toss with the sauce? Thanks!

Hi Candy!

Hah I can't really remember anymore! I think I fried garlic with sesame oil, then added the chives and stir-fried them with oyster sauce and soya sauce. Something like that! I definitely stir-fried everything.
