Chili Crabs

One of our dishes tonite... If you notice this is the first crab dish appears in my blog. Indeed I have not been cooking crabs for a couple of years by now. I love crab dishes but in Miri sea crabs are not a lot and mostly are the fresh water crabs which are sold alive. There is no way I will buy those as I have not got the guts to kill those living creatures. I saw crab dishes in Halen's house very seducing and was lucky to find sea crabs in the recent weekend.

Here how I cooked my favourite crab dish:

3 Crabs
- each cut to half
1 Lemongrass
- bruised
4 Shallots*
2 cloves Garlic*
1/2" Ginger*
2-3 tbsp Chili Paste
3 tbsp Oyster Sauce
2 tbsp Chili Sauce
2 tbsp Soya Sauce
1 tsp Cornflour
- mix with some water
1 Egg

Heat up few tbsp oil, fry lemongrass & pounded ingredients until fragrant.
Add in chili paste & continue until fragrant.
Add in oyster sauce, chili sauce & 1/2 cup water.
Add in crabs & cover for a while until cooked.
Add in salt to taste.
Add in cornflour paste.
Add in beaten egg.
